    Kampala Cable Car Project - Kampala Capital City Authority
    • Start year:
    • Type: Action plan
    • Status: Planning phase

    The cable car system is envisioned to achieve high order objectives such as; traffic decongestion,
    reduction in pollution (air and noise), and improvement in transit connectivity.
    This will reorganize the urban environment and city-wide mobility. These more
    tangible benefits exist within a larger context; cable car development shall provide the
    city and nation an opportunity to demonstrate sustainable public transport leadership
    while deeply engaging international partners; inspire the next generation of leaders, scientists
    and engineers; and shape public perceptions of the our place in the region.
    The ultimate goal of the study has been exploring the cable car development as a catalyst
    that shall chart a sustainable path to modernization of a city that delivers the greatest
    transport benefits for her residents. This is an ambitious goal, but one worthy of a
    great city, achievable in concert with a broad range of public, national and international
    partners.

    BRT - Kampala Capital City Authority
    • Start year:
    • Type: Action plan
    • Status: Planning phase

    The Rationale for the Project:
    The objective of the government’s medium term transport sector policy is to promote efficient and effective transport services as a means of supporting increased agricultural and industrial production, trade, tourism, social and administrative services. It also aims at enhancing national and regional integration in order to open up and access the entire country, facilitate transit traffic, and promote cross-border trade. To underpin this general policy there are supplementary sub-sector policy objectives which are:
    1. Replacing current taxi PSVs with new, high capacity and environmentally friendly PSVs
    By 2020, at least 50% of the public transport network should be operated by high capacity buses using environmentally friendly engines.
    2. Policy – franchising of bus routes in GKMA by public tenders
    All bus routes in the GKMA will be organized into financially balanced groups of routes, and these groups will be tendered for operation by the private sector.
