Buses and minibuses operate on the main routes linking Dakar to other principal cities and towns in Senegal. The most common form of transportation is the car rapide - colourfully painted vehicles that are often very crowded and sometimes unsafe. Taxis are also available and it is best to negotiate the fare before leaving. Car rental agencies operate from Dakar, but rates are often very high.
