    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    The project consists in the construction of a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line of 18.4 kilometers and 23 stations in the urban area of Dakar, including 23 stations and the acquisition of 141 articulated buses.


    The project will improve the bus network in the city of Dakar through dedicated lanes, increased capacity and better quality of service in terms of security, frequency, speed, comfort and reliability. It will help reduce reliance on private cars and increase public transport share in the highly traffic-congested city of Dakar. The project therefore contributes to sustainable transport and climate change mitigation.


    Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)

    EUR 80 million

    Total cost (Approximate amount)

    EUR 369 million

    Environmental aspects

    Had it been in the EU, the project would fall under Annex II of the EIA Directive and the need for a fully-fledged Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) would be established by the competent authority on a case-by-case basis. For this project, an EIA was carried out under the supervision of the World Bank. During appraisal, the EIB will check the compliance of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), the Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) and other environmental and social management systems in place with EIB's standards.


    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement.
