Sustainable Asset Valuation (SAVi) of the Bus Rapid Transit Project in Senegal
- When taking account of externalities the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project in Dakar brings 2,191,656 million CFA total net benefits to the Senegalese society.
- The positive externalities of the BRT project are significant and make the project worthwhile.
This report discusses the results of the SAVi analysis on the Bus Rapid Transit project in Dakar (Senegal).
The public transportation project that is set up to improve mobility in and around Dakar expects to transfer 300,000 passengers per day.
The SAVi analysis takes the following externalities into account: additional income spent in the domestic economy because of the job creation related to the project, the value of time saved, avoided cost of transportation, avoided cost of pollution, avoided cost of GHG emissions and avoided costs of accidents. It simulates different scenarios based on the demand for public transportation with the BRT. The results demonstrate that the positive externalities of the BRT project are significant and make the project worthwhile.
