Appropriate Transport Services

Appropriate Transport Services (ATS) is one of the key themes of the SSATP Long Term Development Plan (LTDP). The importance of this theme stems from the fact that transport services must be provided, affordable to the poor, as well as adequate, safe and appropriate if transport is to contribute to poverty alleviation.

This theme encompasses both urban and rural transport services. The majority of the transport services in Africa are road transport services mainly provided by the private sector. The setting of appropriate policy, regulatory and institutional frameworks for the private sector provision of transport services therefore is the key topic in the following two homepages on urban transport services and rural mobility.
