Welcome to the Centre for Transport Studies (CfTS)

We are a diverse community of students and staff who strive to have a positive impact on the way people move in cities in Africa. We do this through our research to build and capture knowledge, and through our teaching to share and further enrich that knowledge. We also work hand-in-hand with communities, practitioners, public agencies and a wide network of international collaborators to respond directly to urban transport, mobility and accessibility challenges in cities on our continent.
