Africa-Press – Sierra-Leone. In a bid to alleviate transportation challenges and ease congestion on the roads, Sierra Leone is gearing up to welcome a fleet of 50 brand-new seventy-seater buses in the first week of November this year.
This move is a significant stride towards enhancing the country’s urban mobility and is part of the government’s broader strategy to revamp the transport sector.
The arrival of these 70-seater buses marks a pivotal moment in Sierra Leone’s efforts to address its transportation crisis. The initiative is a crucial component of the $50 million “Sierra Leone Integrated and Resilient Urban Mobility Project (IRUMP),” generously funded by the World Bank.
Sierra Leone’s urban mobility strategy, spearheaded by the Bio-led government, aims to create a more efficient and reliable public transportation system. The introduction of these modern, spacious buses is expected to play a vital role in achieving this goal.
The new additions to the country’s public transportation system are set to not only ease congestion but also provide commuters with a more comfortable and convenient means of travel.
