About the Project

The growth of countries of the Global South may rely on various transport modes, referred to as irregular, informal, para-transit, and non-regulated transport, that do not conform to international standards. However, these non-regulated modes of transport may be the most widely used means of mobility in low- and middle-income countries. They often serve a vital transport role in both rural and urban areas, contributing to the health and economy of the areas they serve. This projects seeks to investigate the economics of such road transport with the following objectives:
1. to carry out a systematic literature review to find evidence with regard to the classification of non-regulated road transport modes and
their prevalence in the Global South.
2. to model and assess the economics of non-regulated transport modes against their safety costs.
3. to develop appropriate guidelines for the safety of non-conforming transport modes.
