Kenya Non Motorized Transport Case Study

18 April 2020

The Republic of Kenya has a population of 47.5 million. Twelve million Kenyans, or 31 percent, live in urban areas, and the urbanisation rate is projected to reach 46 percent by 2030. Over the last ten years, traffic congestion has worsened in many cities due to a rapid increase in motor vehicle use, inefficient public transport, and a lack of safe facilities for non-motorised transport (NMT). Going forward, street designs need to prioritise the needs of vulnerable road users.
