This report provides insight on the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the urban motorcycle taxi sector in SubSaharan Africa. Primary data were collected in six countries – three in West Africa (Sierra Leone, Liberia and Ghana) and three in East Africa (Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania). A mixed methods approach was used, conducting qualitative interviews with key stakeholders/ informants relevant to the urban motorcycle taxi sector, while short surveys (approximately 60 per country) were conducted with the motorcycle taxi operators. Country and regional findings were presented to and discussed among the researchers, motorcycle taxi riders and key stakeholders in a series of (online) workshops. Disaggregated and aggregated reports and an aggregated policy brief were produced based on the data and workshops.
