Traffica is an app that enables road users to share real-time traffic updates so as to get around Kampala easily.
Of course, Traffica App borne out of the need to tame the annoying Kampala traffic jam that easily turns a well planned-out day into a disaster.
The app was developed by GreatMinds, a team of Ugandan youths looking to build tech solutions addressing the various challenges in Uganda.
The team, of 6 individuals, has two girls and believe the fact all individuals have different talents is one of the assets that’ll see them bring their products to market and further.
Though they have been working together for slightly over a year, this is their first product which they released on Google Play on 8 September 2017.
Given that traffic Jam in Kampala is a pressing challenge, the team decided, therefore, to develop Traffica app so that road users can share and know in real-time traffic updates so they can travel more conveniently.
The team argues that by one knowing the traffic situation on a certain road, it is easy to make informed travel decisions which result in better transport use.
