Bike sharing project at Makerere University Kampala

A new Bicycle Sharing pilot program was launched on 6 June, 2014 at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. The project is called ‘Cycle for Health’ and is part of a larger city-wide initiative to promote bicycling and non-motorized transport in Kampala supported by the Uganda Sustainable Transport Network (UST-Network) in collaboration with the Dutch Cycling Embassy and UN-Habitat.


Pilot NMT Corridor in Kampala

In Kampala, as in the rest of most developing countries’ cities, road infrastructure has systematically ignored the needs of pedestrians and cyclists. Additionally, the rapid rate of urban growth coupled with high motorization rates brings important challenges to avoid the deteriorating air quality, accessibility and road safety.


Addis Ababa BRT – Progress and Status

TRL (the UK Transport Research Laboratory) is leading the Addis Ababa element of the GEF funded UN-Habitat three cities project on sustainable urban mobility (GEF SUSTRAN Programme). It is providing technical support for the forthcoming implementation of the mass transit corridors - Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Light Rapid Transit (LRT) systems. It is focusing on developing a BRT corridor (B2) as part of city-wide public transport improvements.
