Local transport

Local Transport

You'll find taxis in most cities. Taxi-motos, also called zemi-johns, are everywhere. A journey across town costs about CFA200, and more in Lomé. They are also a handy way to get to remote locations in the bush.

Chartering a taxi will generally cost CFA2000 to CFA3000 per hour.

Bush Taxi

Togo has an extensive network of dilapidated bush taxis, which can be anything from an old pick-up truck to a normal sedan car or nine- or 15- seat people carriers. Travel is often agonisingly slow; unfortunately, these bush taxis are generally the only way to get around. Fares are fixed-ish.
