TheCityFix - Q&A with Prof. Winnie Mitullah on Integrating Non-Motorized Transport in African Cities

Prof. Winnie Mitullah, author of “Non-Motorized Transport Integration into Urban Transport Planning in Africa” was interviewed Talia Rubnitz (TheCityFix) on non-motorized transit in African cities.

Walking and cycling are the dominant modes of transport in African cities, and a dangerous business. Pedestrians and cyclists are disproportionately affected by road traffic crashes compared to motorized transports. Recognizing this problem, many African cities are starting to develop new policy around these dominant modes of transport, but much is left to be done.
