WhereIsMyTransport is a technology company with offices in London and Cape Town. We collect and provide access to public transport data from African cities, overcoming the complexity of local networks and enabling customer success through our unique data and services. Our offerings include data collection, data access, and journey planning.

Our data collection service creates reliable information from both formal and informally run public transport networks in African cities. Access to our comprehensive datasets enables individuals and organisations to analyse, integrate or make decisions which rely on understanding public transport in African cities. Journey planning for formal and informally run public transport in African cities is made easier thanks to the combination of our powerful platform and advanced data.

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, we also have offices in London. Our work has received award recognition from the International Transport Forum, NewCities and the Global Grand MobiPrize and been featured in Wired, The Guardian, and BBC, among others.
