Senegal’s transport system can be challenging for visitors to navigate, but these tips will help you on your way.
Most travelers start their trip in Dakar, landing at the airport to be confronted with a confusing array of vehicles. There are buses available to the middle of town, but they don’t run at night. Taxis are more reliable and there is a desk in the arrivals hall where you can arrange a car.
In the middle of the city, look out for Dakar Dem Dikk (DDD) buses. You can find the routes online and they’re a good way of getting around the city cheaply. Alternatively, try the minivans or the blue-and-yellow cars that screech around the city, seemingly stopping at random. It can be difficult to work out where they are going, but if you are inside and want to get out, just tap a coin on the roof.
Outside Dakar, your quickest bet is a “sept-place” taxi, battered old cars that crisscross the country. You can also try to get a minibus, known as “Ndiaga Ndiaye,” which leave from fixed points when they are full. Ticket prices are fixed, but you will likely have to negotiate an extra charge for luggage.
