Transportation in Dakar



BY EDMUND SMITH-ASANTE

One of the amazing sights of Dakar is the use of horse-drawn carts to transport goods. During my visit in the second week of April 2013, this was a common sight in the Senegalese capital.
To transport or ferry passengers however, the main means of transport, it was observed, were two bus types - one white (the big ones), and the other yellow (the small or mini buses).
Taxis painted in yellow and black, could also be seen on the roads.
