This project aims to support Kenya’s first Mass Rapid Transit System (MRT) as Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA). The NAMA is designed to provide modal alternatives and aims to shift significant shares of individual travel to commuter rail and a new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. The planned NAMA Support Project finances critical components of the first bus line for initiating a transformational change towards a sustainable urban mobility system. The NSP will also provide partial financing for rolling stock to allow poverty oriented tariff schemes within a private business model.
