The purpose of this NAMA is to improve the efficiency of public transport, by moving commuters from private vehicles to public transportation to address both traffic and pollution problems. The NAMA will reduce transport emissions in the Kampala metropolitan region from a business as usual baseline.

This NAMA will assist Uganda in planning, developing and financing a coordinated urban transportation system around design of routes, linkage between the BRT routes and other modes of transport, facilities and resources to increase ridership, operational mechanisms of efficiency such as scheduling, on time repairs, maintenance, buses, pricing, park and ride facilities.

The activities of the NAMA include

  • building 9 routes of the BRT
  • non-motorised transport (NMT) routes linked to the bus routes
  • park and ride facilities
  • programming and scheduling buses along the routes, and
  • ensuring systems for operational efficiency.
