    Kenyan startup Roam, previously Opibus, has launched a new electric mass transit bus, the Roam Rapid, which is specifically designed to address the unique challenges of public transport in Nairobi and Africa as a whole. 

    Founded in 2017, and rebranded earlier this year, Roam is the leading provider of electric vehicles designed and manufactured locally. Its vision is to create reliable and cost effective products designed for the pan-African mass market.

    The company raised US$7.5 million in equity and grant funding late last year to help it scale its operations, and it has now launched the Roam Rapid, the first electric bus in Kenya designed for mass transit. With a capacity of 90 passengers, the bus allows for ample room, efficient boarding and disembarking of commuters, and both seating and standing areas.
