In the third edition of the informal transport webinar series organized by SSATP together with the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), discussions focused on how the use of new, low-cost and quick-win solutions and technologies can help the informal transport sector cope with the crisis and adapt to the new normal.

During the webinar, various start-ups presented case studies on innovative technical solutions that are bringing added value to customers, easing operating conditions, and contributing to the transformation of the informal transport sector in African, Latin American and South Asian countries. They also explored the question of data collection.
