Local Transport

Bush taxis cost about 25% more than buses though true pricing is nearly impossible to ascertain.


The quickest way to get around town is on the back of a motorcycle-taxi called an okada (achaba in the north). Because of their general lawlessness, the government has banned okada in a few of the major cities, badly affecting traffic and driving up the prices with drivers who are willing to flout the law.
