The Challenge 

The region of Great Dakar is home to 25% of the country’s total population and 50% of its urban population but covers only 0.3% of its geographic land.
According to projection, the population will grow by 5 million by 2030.
Most trips (70% of trips made on weekdays) are made on foot.
The current transport system is not efficient: the high number of operators and the disorganization of mass transport supply leads to traffic congestion by cars, buses and taxis. This situation leads to traffic jams, air pollution, road insecurity, accelerated degradation of roads, and it makes transport very expensive (approximately 25% of the food budget for a household), made worse by the increase in private vehicles.
Since 1992, Senegal has been committed to reforming its transport sector. In 2007, a SUMP was produced in to cover the Great Dakar area, and several mass transport projects have been launched. Among them, two major projects:
  • In the south: Express Regional Train line, between the city center and the urban area of Diamniadio
  • In the north: BRT lane between the city center and Guédiawaye


Technical Assistance

The objectives assigned to the Consultancy in charge of developing the SUMP are as follows:
  • Assess the existing urban mobility plan, developed in 2007, and its implementation over the past decade.
  • Revise the 2007 urban mobility plan and develop a new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan that:
    • Capitalizes on existing studies, plans and documents related to urban mobility in Dakar;
    • Is aligned with the government of Senegal’s strategy related to urban mobility;
    • Maximizes the positive impact of the ongoing mass transport projects (TER and BRT), in terms of drawdown, intermodal connections, and ticketing;
    • Is the result of a participatory process, involving stakeholders from the public and private sectors, universities, civil society, etc.
    • Is ready to be adopted by the CETUD, the national government and the relevant authorities.
