    S02-E18 | Improving informal transport in eastern Africa with Tom Courtright

    Many people worldwide rely on public transport, whether it is a government-regulated or an informal, less fixed system. Informal transport represents up to 90% of the transport supply in many African cities. What approaches are needed to drive the improvement of this sector for actors involved and for the environment to reduce the emissions caused by that system?
    Together with Tom Courtright, the research director at the Association for Electric Mobility & Development in Africa and the Co-founder of Lubyanza, a research group in Kampala focusing on boda bodas, we examine transportation in eastern Africa. Tom gives us exciting insights into his research to learn about different kinds of vehicles, policies behind the system, responsibilities of different stakeholders involved and approaches to move electrification forward in these countries!

    How does the future for the world’s almost 300 electric trolley bus networks look like?

Do existing grid infrastructures support a quicker electrification by modern vehicle technology? Or are cities with trolley bus systems limited by a technology lock-in? Together with Adrian Kobayashi, director of planning at Solingen’s municipal transport operator, we’ll investigate the case of a city which not only decided to maintain its trolley bus systems but is making it fit for the future.
