As Nairobi’s leading transit app, M3R crowdsources transport information from their users, using a natural language processing algorithm and a small moderation team. They then provide all commuters with real-time updates on traffic and directions through their mobile apps, website, social media and SMS channels; allowing journeys to be safe and efficient.
Their blog is a space to explore Ma3Route’s data, including any trends, analysis, and visualizations. It’s also a platform to share stories on transportation and mobility. Posts are written by the Ma3Route team, affiliated researchers and guest bloggers.
