BASIGO EXPANDS TO RWANDA WITH ELECTRIC BUS PILOT PROGRAM

ο»Ώ
BasiGo, a Kenyan-based electric bus supplier, is expanding its operations to Rwanda with the launch of BasiGo Rwanda. The company has partnered with AC Mobility, Rwanda’s provider of automated fare collection systems for public transport, to deliver 200 electric buses to bus operators in Rwanda by the end of 2024. The first electric buses for the capital, Kigali, are expected to be delivered in October 2023.
BasiGo has received a grant of USD 1.5 million from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to support its electric bus pilot program in Kigali. The pilot program will see BasiGo’s electric buses deployed across various routes in Kigali in partnership with prominent bus operators, including Kigali Bus Service, Royal Express, and Volcano. The goal of the program is to test the cost-effectiveness and operational viability of electric public transport in the city.
