Read and Parse Data from a CSV File

I tried to read data that was available online and tried to run the sam script given by the author, but it said there was an error in the script.

df = pd.read_csv('travel-times.csv', parse_dates=[['Date', 'StartTime']], index_col='Date_StartTime')
Error: unexpected '[[' in "df = pd.read_csv('travel-times.csv', parse_dates=[["

Tried to replace the brackets "" with "( )" and then it said:
df = pd.read_csv('travel-times.csv', parse_dates= (('Date', 'StartTime')), index_col='Date_StartTime')
Error: unexpected ',' in "df = pd.read_csv('travel-times.csv', parse_dates= (('Date',"

I am not able to find the error as I am a beginner. Any help is highly appreciated.

Is this an R language question, or a Python language question ?
pd.read_csv makes me think of pandas/python

sorry for the late reply. This is an R related question.

What is pd.read_csv? Its not any base function of r? What package?

The code you supplied is almost certainly Python. There is equivalent functionality in R(read.csv)
