DAR ES SALAAM | Public Transport

This is thread is about public transportation in Dar es Salaam. Dar es Salaam (from Arabic: دار السلام‎ Dār as-Salām, literally "the residence of peace"; or simply Dar, formerly Mzizima) is the largest city of Tanzania and the largest city in eastern Africa by population, as well as a regionally important economic centre. It is Tanzania's most prominent city in arts, fashion, media, music, film and television. It is Tanzania's leading financial centre with the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE) being the country's first and most important stock exchange market. Dar es Salaam is the largest and most populous Swahili speaking city in the world.


Dar es Salaam Commuter Rail



THE Tanzania Railway Limited (TRL)[/B] has introduced new state-of-the-art deluxe train services, which are set to commence operations from Dar es Salaam to Kigoma and Mwanza on April 1, after meeting regulations set by the Surface and Marine Transport Regulatory Authority (SUMATRA).

Acting TRL Marketing Manager Charles Ndenge, said that SUMATRA has already approved commencement of operations of the 22 wagons, which will significantly reduce transport problems faced by passengers bound for Mwanza and Kigoma."We have been directed to issue a public notice on applicable fares two weeks before operations commence.

We have already done that to keep the public posted on proper information regarding TRL operations, including fare," he said.

Mr Ndenge said that they will start with 15 wagons as currently only one locomotive was available, which was not able to pull all the 22 wagons.

He further said that TRL was also conducting training to workers who will be providing services in the train, while the process of printing tickets was also underway.

The trains will spend 30 hours to reach their destinations after transiting through 14 major stations between Dar es Salaam and Kigoma and Dar es Salaam and Mwanza.

According to the TRL official, the deluxe service will mainly provide first class services to business persons. The manager said that the train will be operating once in a week (Sunday), in which there will be 10 wagons for the Third Class (80 passengers each), three wagons for the Second Class (60 passengers each) and Second Class - Sleeping wagons (36 passengers each).

Mr Ndenge put the fare for Third Class wagons from Dar es Salaam to Dodoma as at 18,500/-, Second Class - Sitting (24,700/- ) Second Class - Sleeping (41, 200/-); Third Class - from Dar es Salaam to Tabora (25,400/); Second Class - Sitting (33,900/-) and Second Class - Sleeping (56,500/- .)

Others are Dar es Salaam to Kigoma -- Third Class (35,700/-), Second Class - Sitting (47,600/-), Second Class - Sleeping (79,400/- ); Dar es Salaam to Mwanza - Third Class (35,000/-), Second Class - Sitting (46,700/-) and Second Class - Sleeping (77,800/-).

Mr Ndenge also refuted allegations circulating through the media that the wagons were not working properly, adding that they have been approved by SUMATRA and TRL, were not defective are ready to commence operations.

The first phase of the project will have a length of 21 kilometers on three trunk routes with a total of 29 stations. 10 feeder routes will provide connection to residential areas. A total of 148 buses with a capacity of 40 passengers each will be deployed.



Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Infrastructure, Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania



http://www.strabag-international.com...am,%20Tanzania


STRABAG International GmbH was awarded the contract for rehabilitation and extension of the Bus Rapid Transit Infrastructure (BRT = a surface metro system that uses bus technology to provide metro-like services) in the capital of Tanzania, Dar Es Salaam, with a contract value of EUR 134.4 million. The works comprise the rehabilitation and extension of three trunk roads with a total length of 21.1 km.
The contract is part of the „Second Central Transport Corridor Project“, the purpose of which is to support Tanzania’s economic growth by providing enhanced transport facilities. Its main components are the Dar Es Salaam urban transport system, the trunk roads and Zanzibar Airport.
The works in Package 1 are implemented under two lots. Lot 1 contains the rehabilitation and extension of the road from Magomeni to Kimara including 15 bus stations, the Kimara Terminal and the Ubongo Terminal. Lot 2 comprises the route from Magomeni to Kivukoni as well as the Kawawa Road from Magomeni to Morocco and the Msimbazi Road from Fire to Kariakoo including 14 bus stations and the Morocco Terminal as well as the widening of a brigde. The tender provides the construction of one axial concrete paved carriageway for each direction serving exclusively for bus transport. The existing road will be widened in order to keep the mixed traffic lanes and to include the new cycle routes and walkways. Within the roadway each 500 – 700 m bus stations have to be built, the terminals Kimara, Ubungo and Morocco have to be enlarged. Additionally, infrastructural works like drinking water supply, sewerage system and telecommunication system as well as street lighting and traffic signs will be provided.

BRT Construction Pictures from Tanzania Thread

Commuter Rail

The Dar es Salaam commuter rail, informally known as Treni ya Mwakyembe, is an urban and suburban commuter rail network serving the Tanzanian commercial city of Dar es Salaam. It is one of the two initiatives taken by the government to ease travel within the congested city; the other being the Dar es Salaam bus rapid transit system. Services are provided by the Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) and Tanzania Railways Limited (TRL).

TRL line
Tanzania Railways operates a 12 km track from Ubungo Maziwa to the city centre via Mabibo, Tabata Mwananchi/Relini, Tabata Matumbi, Buguruni kwa Mnyamani, Buguruni and Kamata.

TAZARA line
TAZARA offers two routes on its 20.5 km rail network.[11] The first from its station in Dar es Salaam to Mwakanga which lies on the outskirts of the city. It stops at Kwa Fundi Umeme, Kwa Limboa, Lumo Kigilagila, Sigara, Kitunda road, Kipunguni B, Majohe and Magnus. The second service runs from its Dar es Salaam station to Kurasini via Kwa Fundi Umeme, Yombo, Chimwaga, Maputo, Mtoni Relini and Kwa Aziz Ali Relini.


Expansion

RAHCO, the holding company of TRL, issued a tender in September inviting bids for feasibility studies and the design of new railway lines from its central station to four destinations: Luguruni (Morogoro Road), Chamazi (Kilwa Road), Pugu (via Julius Nyerere International Airport) and Kerenge.

Will the commuter rail be electrified or diesel?

We've been educated that Tanzania-Zambia railway is the iron proof of friendship between China and African brothers.

I think these commuter trains use diesel not electricity.

ITDP is helping in establishment of Bus Rapid Transit in Dar es Salaam

In 2013, the city started construction on the DART project, including adding center-aligned BRT lanes and world-class stations on Morogoro Road, one of the city’s main thoroughfares. Through this project, over 1,000 construction jobs have been created. Perhaps most exciting is the fully dedicated BRT-only street which runs through Dar es Salaam’s city center. As a result, the project has the potential to reverse the city’s congestion problems, which currently make it all but impossible to access the city’s downtown by car. The project will breathe new life into Dar es Salaam and increase its economic competitiveness in the East Africa region.

With construction well on its way, the project now faces the challenge of establishing bus operating companies and attracting investors. ITDP is bringing its first hand experience at transforming the minibus taxi industry into shareholders in BRT operating companies from other cities, including Johannesburg and Cape Town. With a re-signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), ITDP is also helping the DART Agency to prepare for the eventual system opening. Once running, the DART BRT will dramatically reduce commute times for Dar es Salaam residents, who currently face upwards of 4 hours stuck in traffic each day. This project has the potential to be truly transformative, improving urban life in Tanzania and curbing the potential for sprawl.

As part of the process, ITDP has helped improve conditions for non-motorized transit in the city. Drawing on ITDP’s expertise in bicycle and pedestrian planning, the team has implemented high quality bicycle lanes parallel to the BRT corridor, as well as safe sidewalks and at-grade pedestrian crossings. This will provide a safe space for cyclists and pedestrians, helping to build a friendlier, more people-centric city.

DART is the first rapid transit system in the East African Community (Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania) and the third after Lagos BRT and Addis LRT in SSA excluding South Africa.

Meanwhile in Dar, Tanzania

One of these buses removes 10 nissans out of the road! = 140 passengers

=====

The fleet of Dar es Salaam Bus Rapid Transit (Dart) during the launch on Tuesday in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

By NAIROBI NEWS REPORTER
Tanzanians are a happy lot after their long-awaited Dar es Salaam Bus Rapid Transit (Dart) kicked off Tuesday with free rides until Thursday.

And envious Kenyans have camped on Twitter to mourn the transformation that is happening of Tanzania while Kenya seems to be mark timing.

After the two free days, commuters on the state-of-the-art will have to pay using specially made cards and barcodes, the two free days has seen the crews tests the electronic billing system.

Meanwhile, commuters will pay a maximum of Tsh800 (Ksh40) on using Dart, a drop from the initial Tsh1200 (Ksh55) proposed by the interim operator.

When the system is fully operational, it will have 76 buses carrying between 80 and 140 passengers each. The Tanzanian government has already constructed 29 bus stations/terminals. The buses will operate for 19 hours every day from 5am.

Construction began in April 2012. An Austrian construction company Strabag International GmbH was awarded the project at a cost of Ksh16 billion (€134 million).

DISAPPOINTMENT

The first phase of the project will cover a length of 21 kilometers on three trunk routes with a total of 29 stations. 10 feeder routes will provide connection to residential areas.

Kenyans and Ugandans took to Twitter to show their disappointment with their respective Government for lagging behind Tanzania.

One Simon Wachira (@simonwachira) wrote, “Dar es Salaam Rapid Transit buses are here as Nairobi dithers with blocked sewers! After Ethiopia, there goes TZ!”

I think they need to put barriers between the travel lanes and the bus lanes to keep the people and others drives out... Those curbs don't seem to be working...

The Dar es salaam BRT system named Dar es salaam rapid transit (DART) is officially operational after the completion of Phase one which covers 21.1 km from Kimara, Morocco, Kariakoo and Kivukoni fish market.

The system is now saving commuters a lot of time that can be used in other productive economic activities, time that once was wasted in jams. Reading from different urban mobility articles concerning mass transit and urban public transportation, We developed a great passion on smart urban transportation and we hope as a fast developing urban area Dar es salaam should not just work hard on mitigating traffic jams but also invest more on sustainable urban smart roads. Roads that will avoid the city from traffic jams and gridlocks, make the downtown Dar a walkable city and pedestrian and cyclist friendly.

We hope to see Dar es salaam compressed(control unplanned sprawl) Government should acquire important land areas and provide better housing schemes and proper public transport for all. More importantly provide fast and reliable mass transit.

The Dar es salaam BRT system has changed a lot of scenes in Dar es salaam and as photography enthusiasts we went out and do a photo walk appreciating the beauty of the Buses and the streets. The following are the pictures taken by Indaressalaam Team from Morogoro/bibi Titi Mohamed road to Kivukoni front.
