The Matatu Map. In 2015 Kenya’s matatus became the first informal transit system in the world to have an online map when a team from the University of Nairobi worked with its international partners to begin Digital Matatus, a data crowd-sourcing project that has already documented over 3,000 stops on a system that serves 3.5 million people per day. Just this year, the project updated its routes in order to continue providing free, reliable data to passengers and policy makers alike.
