The young transport authority is taking up the challenge of transforming Abidjan urban mobility

Two years after its creation, the Urban Transport Authority of Abidjan (AMUGA) held its first strategic seminar in early December.

After a hectic year filled with many projects, this meeting allowed AMUGA’s team to take a step back and assess its operations. Born in 2019, AMUGA has experienced a very quick ramp up lead by its general management and supported by a team of around 20 coworkers today.

Côte d’Ivoire is implementing a very ambitious program for urban mobility and the human and financial capacities of the AMUGA must be strengthened so it can handle numerous ongoing projects: metro and BRT lines, bus network extension, development of interchange infrastructure, etc. The AMUGA has already achieved promising outcomes with regards to the improvement of traffic management in partnership with the municipalities of Abidjan.

This strategic seminar took place at the end of the technical assistance provided by the Nodalis-Transitec consortium. With the consultant’s support, the AMUGA has structured its organization, elaborated an action plan and implemented new management tools.
