According to the bank's website, "the proposed Timor-Leste Public Transport Project (TLPTP) will support the Government of Timor-Leste's planned public transport agenda to provide (i) a high-quality, sustainable public transport system that meets the needs of users for safety, comfort, security, convenience, affordability, accessibility, and availability, and (ii) a transparent and stable regulatory environment that encourages ongoing private sector investment and operations. The TLPTP is planned to transform interurban land transport and strengthen the position of Dili, the country's capital city, as the transport hub by integrating bus routes and providing convenient and comfortable bus terminals. The TLPTP will be aligned with the following impact: social equality and national unity promoted by having improved connectivity for all in Timor-Leste. The project will have the following outcome: reliable, resilient, and sustainable public transport services provided and access to public services and economic opportunities improved. The outputs of the project will be (i) climate-resilient and optimized public transport network system developed; (ii) institutional capacity strengthened; and (iii) regulatory framework for low carbon and climate-resilient development strengthened".

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
