Synopsis
The “car rapide”, the popular collective means of transport in Dakar, risks disappearing. Dakar needs more modern and safer means of transport. According to a new law, they would continue to circulate in the suburbs but not in the centre. The drivers and the apprentices are desperate, if the government eliminates them, what will happen to them? Ferrying us from one side of the city to the other, the “cars rapides” show us a reality in transformation. Many voices are being heard to say that the “car rapide” is an integral part of the panorama of the city and that it cannot be done away with . Even though they may not be so “rapide”…
