    Implementation of an efficient bus rapid transit (BRT) system for the city in Kigali, with linkage to non-motorized transport

    Activities: (2016 - 2030)
    The NAMA is planned to be implemented through the design, construction, implementation, and operation of an efficient bus rapid transit (BRT) system for the city of Kigali.

    The key direct mitigation actions include the switch to low emissions, high efficiency transport modes, higher fuel and emissions standards for new vehicles, low sulphur diesel regulations, fleet renewal and scrappage regulations and emissions compliance certification and inspection. In addition the NAMA will include supportive actions like BRT main bus corridors, standardized route optimization, dedicated “rush hour” bus lanes and integration with rural and inter-city bus routes.

    Under this NAMA and the resulting agreement reached by the Inter-ministerial Coordinating Committee, and regulated via the Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority and the City of Kigali, private sector companies are expected to operate the Kigali BRT system via service contracts with individual companies or cooperatives, effectively under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.
