More than €135 million will be invested to develop the Dakar Bus Rapid Transit to modernise its urban mobility and transport network.

Meridiam has just signed the concession contract for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project in Dakar. This project, which Meridiam will implement with its partners Keolis and Fonsis, is the first of its kind in Africa. Part of Dakar’s global strategy is to modernise its urban mobility and transport network by 2025.

This project will create about 1,000 direct and local jobs, with a focus on women and young people, of which about one third will be drivers.  It is also a concrete project in favour of the energy transition that offers a solution adapted to the challenge of climate change, but also an efficient alternative to the existing diesel bus network.
