From Communauté de la Fabrique des Mobilites

Short Description: A platform that helps citizens to share/access info about transport and current traffic conditions

Description: Ma3Route is a mobile/web/SMS platform that crowd-sources for transport data and provides users with information on traffic, matatu directions and driving reports. Ma3Route aims to make traveling easier in developing countries by democratizing timely transport information. We hope to bring greater sanity to the roads and inform city planning and transport regulation in emerging economies through the provision of transport data and trend analysis. The Ma3Route Platform is for users of the Matatus' network but also for drivers and Professional:

  • It allows users to see what's happening on the network and to make smart navigation decision via the "Traffic Updates", but also to choose a public transport option to go from a point A to B.
  • It allows the drivers to connect with the users and to target new customers.
