COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: The Digital Matatus team has been collecting and visualizing data on the transit system of Nairobi asking all those interested to join the process including the city government, the local technology community, and NGOs. In May 2019, team members conducted a series of workshops to procure feedback on the updated transit map. The Matatu conductors and drivers, who have become an important part of the team, helped us editing the most recent release of the map. The collaboration has helped create trust in the data we have collected allowing it to be used beyond our project to improve transportation planning in Nairobi.
