Taxis and Local transport in the Gambia

Taxi roads in the gambia can be confusing. Shared Taxis run predetermined routes from one place to another. You can join a shared taxi at any point along its route or get on at one of the Taxi garages.
Shared taxis are usually Yellow taxi's or small buses (minivans). To stop a taxi in route just wave it down and hop in. There will usually be other passengers in the car and the taxi (or bus) will stop and start as people want to get on or off. You may get off at any time just tell the driver or his assistant (apprentie) to stop.

Sometimes a driver may ask you if you would like a "Town Trip". He is asking if you would like to hire the Taxi for exclusive use. If you accept he will take you directly to your destination without stopping. You will have to discuss the price.

Shared taxi fares are fixed. To see detail descriptions of the Taxi routes and fares see below.
