“The Regulation of buses and minibuses: private sector participation as catalysts to reform in Kigali, Rwanda,” is one of eight case studies part of a series titled Studies of Informal Passenger Transport Reforms in Sub-Saharan Africa. 

It describes the recent history of public transport in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, and focuses on private-sector involvement as a catalyst for reform. The research was conducted in 2021 and 2022 and reflects the situation until that time. The ambitious top-down transformation of the paratransit sector in the city was largely based on operators’ corporatization and regulatory framework changes. The report describes the reform process and results in a comprehensive manner, introducing previously unpublished data and an analysis of the outcomes for the main stakeholders.

The case studies were prepared with the support of Agence Française de Développement, MobiliseYourCity, and the Mobility and Logistics Trust Fund (MOLO) of The World Bank.
