The transport sector is a significant segment of Rwanda’s economy due to its strategic role in boosting socio-economic development. 

The law No. 09/13 of 01/03/2013 gives RURA the mandate to regulate transport services namely road and inland waterways transport of goods and persons. 

In the absence of a sector law, the Authority developed a good number of tertiary legislations in terms of guidelines such as those for public transport operation, driving school operation, transport of goods operation and freight forwarding operations.

RURA ensures that transport services are available and reliable throughout the country to meet, in transparency, current and future demands. It also ensures that service providers comply with laws and regulations in force.
