The City of Zarqa, located about 20 km to the northeast of Amman, currently has a population of about 1 Million. Existing demand is high and is predicted to rise in future years. Public transport mode share along the corridor is over two thirds of the current demand, however, this demand is distributed on a multitude of modes, including large buses, medium buses, and service taxis.
