Sustainable Transportation Solutions for East African Cities, or Sustran East Africa, is a collaboration between the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), UN-HABITAT, and the municipal governments of Nairobi, Kampala and Addis Ababa. Additional partners include:
- Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)
- Transportation Research Laboratory (TRL)
- Institute for Transport and Development Policy (ITDP)

Funded by the United Nations Global Environment Fund (GEF), this three year project aims to build a sustainable transport network and establish sustainable transportation demonstration corridors in each of the municipal areas.
In Nairobi, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the Ministry of Transportation and UN-HABITAT, a Programme Management Unit and National Steering Committee have been formed, and the Ministry of Transportation has recently announced plans for three Bus Rapid Transit corridors: Athi River to Kikuyu town; Thika to Nairobi Central Business District; and the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to Nairobi Central Business District (Ministry of Transportation, Flagship Projects).
