The National Institute of Transport (NIT) is a public higher learning institution located on the west of Dar-es-Salaam City, along Mabibo Road in Ubungo Light Industrial area; just about one kilometer off the Morogoro Road. NIT was established in 1975 as a training wing of the then National Transport Corporation (NTC).

NIT was charged with the responsibility of strengthening the human resource capabilities of transport operatives and middle-level managers of subsidiary companies of NTC. These subsidiary companies were: National Bus Services Limited (KAMATA), Usafiri Dar-as-Salaam Limited (UDA), Regional Transport Companies (RETCOs) etc.

In 1982, it was realized that there was a need to have an Institute that will cover all modes of transport. The Institute expanded its area of activities and responsibilities. As a result, NIT was re-established through NIT Act No. 24 of 1982 as an autonomous Higher Learning Institution under the then Ministry of Communications and Works.

It came into operation on 1st July, 1983 through Government Notice No. 91. Currently, the Institute is under the Ministry of Transport. With legal status and the Governing Council was given a mandate to govern and administer the Institute. NIT Joining Instructions 2021/2022 Download PDF
