The DigitalTransport4Africa (DT4A) Webinar Series is a monthly webinar organized by WRI Africa and Global with DT4A consortium partners. The goal of the series is to facilitate knowledge exchange around public transport and data initiatives taking place in African cities and beyond, especially those undertaken by the consortium partners.

As part of its newly-launched Informal and Shared Mobility in Low and Middle-Income Countries program, the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF) commissioned Agile City Partners (ACP) to conduct a rapid scan of mobility data collection efforts in informal transportation and shared mobility around the world. In this session, ACP presents an overview of their findings, including the key initiatives, projects, or platforms currently in place to collect data. What is important to know about informal transportation and how might we improve data in this sector?
