Evolving Smart Transport: Nairobi

In Partnership with The Center for Sustainable Urban Development at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, the University of Nairobi, and a team of local technologists and researchers in Groupshot is working to improve the way Nairobi gets around. Beginning in the Fall, 2011, Groupshot and the wider team have been investigating tools to improve data collection, organization, reliability and resilience that can adapt and evolve the current transport system in Nairobi.

Currently underway a primary round of data collection and local student design workshops are growing the understanding and  of this otherwise misunderstood and complex system. The first series of tools will be entering development this spring to improve on data collection and transport information management in the decentralized Matatu system.
