Senegal’s Sall Inaugurates E-Bus Fleet of Dakar Public Transport Network

After a four-year wait, Dakar residents will soon move around their city on board these electric buses.

The vehicles are part of the new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) fleet which was inaugurated on Sunday by the President of Senegal. The 120 e-buses will be powered by solar energy.

“Sunday, 14th of January will go down in our history as a day on which we took another leap towards a modern Senegal,” Macky Sall said.
