Ministry to Launch Virtual Map App

December 28 , 2019


The Ministry of Transport is set to launch the first digital mapping technology that will show Ethiopia's road map as a virtual image. This technology will enable users to view the details of the major and feeder roads of the country and give accurate representations of particular areas. Alongside this technology, the Ministry has also introduced the first-ever trip planning application that shows the directions of different routes. The data of the routes of Addis Abeba Light Rail, Anbessa City Bus, Sheger Public Transport and minibus taxi services have been incorporated into the new system. The soft launch of the programme was held on December 27, 2019, at the Hilton Hotel with the presence of Dagmawit Moges, minister of Transport.
