Kampala Capital City Authority Executive Director Jenifer Musisi has beseeched private investors to join the Authority and secure 5,000 buses alongside cable cars to put in place an efficient public transport system in Kampala.
Musisi made the revelations on Wednesday at a ceremony as KCCA recognised its key partners at City Hall in Kampala and had recently introduced a Rapid Bus Transport System with a team of experts from KCCA expected to travel to Europe next week to sufy how developed countries are cable cars for mass transit.
“It has been done elsewhere anbd it is possible to introduce it here. It does not even cost much,” Musisi said.
A cable car in the context of mass transit is a system using rail cars that are hauled by a continuously moving cable running at a constant speed. Individual cars stop and start by releasing and gripping this cable as required.
