Addis Ababa, Ethiopia: Building an improved NMT culture through Bicycle Sharing
This is a project case story within the framework of the TUMI Challenge 2018. The city of Addis Ababa is home to 25% of Ethiopians, and its population is expected to approach five million by 2030. Considered one of the fastest growing urban settlements in the world, its planning and development is struggling to keep pace with its rapid expansion. For citizens, getting around the city is a daily challenge due to traffic congestion and frequent accidents, inadequate public transport and a lack of infrastructure to accommodate non-motorised transport (NMT). The city is prioritising the improvement and development of infrastructure to enable more people to get around on foot or by bicycle. It has set itself the ambitious goal of having the largest bike-sharing system on the continent.
