Organisation, financement et rentabilité des micro-entreprises de transport urbain en Afrique subsaharienne -- Le cas de Harare

Based on the experience of cities where two competitive, transport systems coexist - a large enterprise (private-public in the case of Harare) and, small vehicles enterprises (private sector), the former is subject to term limits, due to mediocre financial performance, and its need for subsidies. In the case of Harare, the Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) have for quite some time, been a monopoly within the city's network, under private capital, and management, but has never satisfied the public transportation demands.

Organisation, financement et rentabilité des micro-entreprises de transport urbain en Afrique subsaharienne -- Le cas de Bamako

Among the capitals of West Africa, Bamako has been singled out because of a system of urban transport, in which the structured enterprises could never attain sustainability. This transport system, in fact controlled by the drivers union, remains undeniably inflexible, and inadaptable. However, the structure of its road network, the employment being concentrated downtown, i.e., conducive to traffic congestion particularly during rush hours, and to higher levels of pollution, are elements favoring improvements to the system.

The stakes are high for Sub-Saharan Africa transport sector: the need to lower merchandises transportation costs, and conversely, offer an increasingly growing urban population, adequate means of transportation.
