::: Engineering a Mass Transit App for a City Without Mass Transit
In Nairobi, private car ownership isn’t the norm: the bulk of its citizens rely on public transit. But when Nairobi’s formal bus system collapsed in the 1990s, the government failed to do anything about it.
So without a formal urban planning strategy, an enterprising group of Kenyans sought to fill the void.
The result was a crazy, lawless, and ├╝ber-popular mode of transportation: the Kenyan Matatu.
