Why SOM?

NAPTA is a national organisation, dedicated to sustainable public transport in Kenya and facilitating the interchange of ideas among transport researchers, investors, managers, workers, policy makers, and educators from all across the country.  The Alliance focuses on Research, Innovations, Advocacy, Training and Investments. It hosts various forums to bring together all key stakeholders in the public transportation space to learn from one another and offer solutions to pressing challenges in the sector.


We value institutional association with NAPTA that has been largely limited to voluntary attendance and sponsorships of our conferences and programs.  In order to strengthen this relationship and build closer interaction with institutions associated with transportation, NAPTA has introduced the concept of Supporting Organisational Membership (SOM).
