Digital Matatus continues to collect and update data on matatu routes in Nairobi and is beginning projects elsewhere. Our vision is to use technology and local partnerships to make public transit in cities more visible, legible, service oriented, efficient, and open. Our work supports city data collection on transit by developing unique data collection tools and creating a process that involves and engages the transit community in each city. We hope to spread our data collection process to more cities where informal and semi-formal transit is an essential part of the public transit system.
