Urban Mobility -- Eleventh Steering Committee Meeting -- Introduction

This paper comprises the main reports presented during the Eleventh Steering Committee Meeting of the SSATP Urban Mobility Component.

The choice of this theme reflected widespread recognition that, in Sub-Saharan Africa, the overwhelming bulk of motorized transport relies on minibuses, or medium-capacity buses. This established fact poses a number of questions that formed the central focus for meeting. How are these micro-enterprises organized and financed?
