This policy brief has been developed based on a 2018 study of motorcycle and three-wheeler taxis in rural areas of Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The aim of the study was to improve knowledge and understanding concerning effective ways of enabling rural people to benefit from the safe use of motorcycles and three-wheelers. The objective was to enable the safe operation of these vehicles to provide good, affordable and inclusive access for rural communities. The policy brief provides key policy implications coming from the research for transport and safety policy makers.
