Buses and Coaches

This is not yet entirely efficient but has helped ease some of the congestion in town. A few London styled double-decker buses have also been introduced on certain routes. These are the cheapest forms of Transport Union (GPRTU) runs a fairly effective service. Several mini buses and lorries from this Union, known as ‘Tro-tro’, run regular routes in the inner city and though congested and often rickety, it is the quickest and most inexpensive way to travel.
