Urban Transport Policy for Greater Maputo

1. Introduction

Mozambique is a developing country with a per capita income of $345. More than one million people, most of them with low incomes, live in the city of Maputo. Most Mozambicans do not own a car and are not expected to own one in their lifetime. The majority depend on public transportation, largely buses, for the trips of daily life—to get to work, to shop, to conduct business, to go to school, and to run errands. The majority of the lower income population of Maputo lives on the outer edges of the city, and depends on bus transportation to reach work and conduct other daily activities.
