MEST, Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), and the French Agency for Development (AFD) are organizing the Accra TroTro Apps Challenge May 27-28. Be there or be square
In collaboration with Concordia University, AMA and AFD organized a data collection campaign on Accra’s transport in the Spring of 2015. Surveyors recorded data on the 315 trotro routes registered in the metropolis, using smartphones with GPS capabilities.
Participants will compete to come up with exciting app ideas based on original data on Accra’s trotro network that will be publicly released for the first time at the start of the event. Ideas making an impact in terms of mobility and development are encouraged.
