Bringing sustainable transport forward - Study tour Dar Es Salaam
Dar es Salaam’s experience in implementing East Africa’s first bus rapid transit (BRT) system can serve as a catalyst for improvements in public space and transport systems in the rest of the region.
The DART system has dramatically reduced commute times for Dar es Salaam residents, who previously faced upwards of 4 hours stuck in traffic each day.
DART is in the process of retaining a second operator to bring the total fleet to just over 300 buses. When fully operational, the system is expected to carry 400,000 passengers per day.
The visit has been structured in such a way that participants can gather experiences and lessons learned in order to plan and implement similar projects in their own cities.
