Windhoek has inadequate infrastructure to allow widespread active mobility options. This problem is coupled with a lack of access to affordable, sustainable mobility alternatives. In a city where transport costs are high, and paratransit is the main way to get around, the pilot project aims to make electric bicycles available and accessible to students by installing E-Mobility Hubs on two University Campuses. The project will provide students and residents with e-bikes to use and experience sustainable mobility options. To scale and ensure sustainability of the pilot, appropriate financing instruments and awareness campaigns should be supported to transform Namibia’s capital Windhoek into an e-mobility hub in Southern Africa.
