In 2008 Durban set out to be first truly smarty city in Africa following it's fibre optic network to be up and running. Since then there has been a desire to improve the way the cities systems communicate and interact.

Right now there is a large Integrated Transport project being implemented which will be the first of its kind that will integrate, rail, bus, taxi and other modes of transport into the city infrastructure for the first time.

A smarty city app is also available to citizens on the various app stores.

What is unclear is if this solution has had an improvement to citizens' life in the city?
