Kenya’s capital unveils first electric-powered bus

Addis Ababa, October 20, 2022 (FBC) – Swedish technology start-up Roam has begun piloting electric buses in Nairobi, Kenya.

The company will for the next 12 months provide commuter services between the central business district and the city’s outskirts. To begin with, Roam has unveiled one bus that can ferry 77 passengers.

It will be the first electric-powered bus to operate in Nairobi, a city of more than four million people.

It aims to bring on board a total of 100 buses within two years to be operated by a local provider and the Nairobi city authorities.

The launch is seen as part of a plan by the Kenyan government to launch a Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) system in the capital.
