In a landmark move for sustainable transport in East Africa, BasiGo has received a grant of USD 1.5 million from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through its Development Innovation Ventures program. This funding is a major boost to BasiGo’s ongoing efforts to introduce electric buses in Kigali, Rwanda, as part of a pilot program aimed at proving the cost-effectiveness and operational viability of electric public transport in the city.
