Given the significant challenges to large-scale paratransit replacement identified in Paratransit in African Cities (operations, regulation and reform), it is evident that Sub-Saharan African cities are likely to depend, for decades to come, on paratransit modes. This chapter, Strategy options for paratransit business development and service improvement, explores some new directions taken by paratransit in Cape Town and Nairobi, and considers potential straits for developing paratransit businesses and improving the availability and quality of the service.
My co-authors include Eric Bruun, Risper Orero, Dorothy McCormick and Paul Browning.
You are welcome to contact me for a pre-publication copy of the chapter.
