Transportation planners from Dhaka city always confront the paradox of adjusting an ever increasing travel demand with the limited available resources. Thus, Dhaka city motorists suffocate while they idle in the intolerable gridlock for hours. ITS applications can play an active role in mitigating this gridlock by dramatically changing the existing problems of limited roadway capacity, vulnerable safety and neglected public transportation system. However, after carefully scrutinizing the prevailing traffic conditions and their interlinked problems, the authors have identified various potential ITS applications despite limited active ITS applications in Dhaka city. Observations indicate that rather than perpetuating the concept of ITS in Dhaka city as mythological, it is indeed a cost-effective method for both the users and the government for traffic management.
