dc.description.abstract This study sought to assess the need for funding for a sustainable bus service for the City of Windhoek. The study was guided by two main objectives namely, to ascertain other potential revenue streams that the City of Windhoek can use to provide a sustainable public transport bus service, and secondly to explore existing best practices of funding strategies in the sustainable public transport system of the City of Windhoek. The study adopted a qualitative approach and primary data was collected using a research questionnaire, and the data were collected from participants who are chairpersons of different committees of the sustainable urban transport master plan. Data collected were analysed and interpreted using the inductive approach and findings were presented in graphs, charts and in tabular format. Moreover, discussions on the findings were made and it was observed that a need for funding exists in order to realize a sustainable public bus service for the City of Windhoek. The study concluded that additional revenue streams in the form of national funding, local fares, advertising revenues, national and local taxes, revenues from public-private partnerships and donors should be explored to fund the City of Windhoek public transport bus service. The researcher recommends that a strong policy framework that prioritises sustainable national funding programmes for public transport in the country should be established by the central government. en_US
