Today’s Photograph: Public Transport Race

Public Transport Race

The photograph showing two of the mode of public transports in Mali.  On the left is ‘bush taxi’ of Peugot504.  This is not taxi in Bamako where identified with yellow colour but public transport between villages of other town plying daily to Bamako.  Normally ‘bush taxi’ carry 10 human passengers.  The other one is mini bus or ‘sotrama’ as normally referred to here.  This ‘sotrama’ also plying from another village or town to Bamako.  ‘Sotrama’ in Bamako identified with green colour.  These public transports normally arrived in Bamako very early in the morning and return back to its destination in the afternoon in order to reach its destination before dusk.

    Ayoh Awi, Fauziah and Uncle Awang are rightly observed at that particular road seems in very good condition. This road is the main road connecting between two cities Bamako, Mali and Dakar in Senegal and very important routes to brings goods to Mali as Mali is the landlock country, without sea port.

    Salam Mamadou,
    Like Pak Zawi said….The road so good.The passengers of the two transports must be enjoying the ride as no pothholes found on the road and the drivers definetly drive with full speed ahead.

    Salam Mamadou
    Tumpang lalu to Pak Zawi …
    agreed with your observation on the road condition.
    This can be due to many factors. One of which may be due to the limited number of vehicles, especially heavy trucks and lorries, on the road. The other would be the climate. I don’t know if its rains there that, with the heat, may erode the tarred road like ours do here.

    The road seems to be so good. No potholes whatsoever.
