  31. 31. Garmeme Hypothetical Nairobi Transit System
  32. 32. Challenge #2 Providing Information to the Public The more than 50 numbered routes plied by the microbuses have never been made publically available on a route map, and riders depend on word-of-mouth for route choice. This is in part because microbuses fall slightly out of the jurisdiction of the relevant city departments, but largely because the departments responsible for transport management lack the technical capacity / funding to utilize GIS to produce and continuously update such route maps. Further, the City does not have any means to convey urgent transport (or other public service) information to residents in a timely manner (e.g., through SMS text messages). The City has expressed interest in this type of service but is concerned about logistics and cost of establishing such a system.
