Local Transport

Bush Taxis

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, but unfortunately these bush taxis are generally the only way to go from town to town. Fares are fixed-ish.

Motorcycle Taxis

You'll find taxis in most cities. Taxi-motos (motorcycle taxis) – 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-moto will generally cost CFA2500 to CFA4000 per hour.
