Local Transport

  • Transport is organised for VVIP delegates from the airport to the hotel and within Kigali.


  • Thanks to our official transport partner, AC Group, general participants will have access to an airport shuttle bus upon purchase of a Tap&Go card, which is available at Kigali International Airport at a cost of US $40. 


  • Please note that the airport shuttle will begin from 3pm Sunday 25 November and will not run at all hours of the day. If your flight arrives before this time, during the off period, or you wish to travel privately, taxis are available and prices vary from 15 US Dollars to 20 US Dollars depending on destination.


  • Shuttles from selected hotels (Serena, Marriott, 5 Swiss, Heaven, Park Inn, Onomo, The Manor, Chez Lando and Lemigo) to the Forum venue will also be available with a Tap&Go card (purchased from the airport or Kigali Convention Centre for US $40) throughout the week. For queries related to Tap&Go, please call 6655.

As part of efforts to shift towards low-carbon mobility, the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has sponsored the availability of bicycles during the forum as an alternative to motorised transport. Delegates will have the opportunity to test ride new e-bicycles that have recently become available in Kigali since October 2018. The bicycles will be available for test rides during the forum. In addition, a limited number of bicycles will be available courtesy of Africa Rising Cycling Center (ARCC) for delegates who wish to cycle to and from their place of accommodation to the Kigali Convention Center (KCC). Short guided tours will also be arranged during the week of the Forum to nearby areas in Kigali through GGGI partner, Rwandan Adventures.

Two tours are also being provided on a first-come, first-served basis on Friday 30 November to take a guided cycling tour outside of the City of Kigali. One tour will be from 8am to 11am, the second tour will be from 1pm-3:30pm. Both tours will start and end from the KCC. Cyclists will be provided with a guide, a helmet, and a filled water bottle during the two tours. Delegates are kindly advised to bring sport attire should they wish to participate in one of these tours. Delegates can register to use the bicycles and/or sign up for the tours in-person during the week. Attendants from both partner organizations will be located at the KCC in between the Radisson Blue Hotel and the entrance to the conference venue.
