Roam has today announced the launch of a new electric Mass Transit Bus, the Roam Rapid, which is specifically designed to address the unique challenges of public transport in Nairobi and Africa as a whole.
It offers a solution for the growing number of cities implementing Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems across the continent and is the first of its kind in Kenya.
Roam is a Swedish-Kenyan technology company that develops, designs and deploys electric vehicles tailored for the African continent, leading the transition to sustainable transport. Founded in 2017, it became the first company to deliver locally produced electric motorcycles and buses. With nearly 100 employees, Roam is today the leading provider of electric vehicles in Africa and was recently listed on TIME magazine’s top 100 most innovative companies.
