SCANIA WILL DELIVER BUS SYSTEM TO OUAGADOUGOU
The population of Ouagadougou – 3 million – is expected to double by 2030. At present, half of the residents travel on foot, while 80 percent of motorised trips are carried out on two wheels
The ambitious transport plan for the capital of Burkina Faso is, over the period 2018–2020, to strengthen Ouagadougou’s public transport network by deploying 550 new vehicles on current and future bus routes. Initially, the current bus system will be modernised while a future Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT) with four routes is planned.
By involving RATP Group and Scania in this project, Burkina Faso has chosen to build on the expertise of two internationally recognised transport stakeholders. The RATP Group is one of the world’s five largest urban public transport companies. It will contribute its expertise on the entire mobility chain in technical, financial and training issues. In addition, RATP Group will design, supply and operate Intelligent Transport Systems, such as passenger information and ticketing systems.
