Kenya Receives KES 50B from the European Commission to Electrify BRT, First ever in east Africa

Over the last couple of years, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) has gained popularity in African cities as a cost-effective and efficient mode of public transportation.
BRT systems in African cities have been developed with the aim of providing quality, affordable, and reliable public transport services to residents.
Some of the African cities that have implemented BRT systems include Lagos, Johannesburg, Accra, and Dar es Salaam – and soon, Nairobi will be joining them with a better proposition, which will also include an electric bus element for sustainability reasons.

      Great for Kenya to be the pioneers of such a great innovation in E.Africa. Other members of E.Africa community should strive to adopt this project.
