Do you know the African country with the best transportation system on the continent? Well, it’s certainly not Nigeria, but a country in East Africa—Tanzania.
According to the information posted by the Twitter handle @AfricaFactsZone, Tanzania is a leading country regarding transportation in Africa. As a matter of fact, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, has one of the best transportation systems in Africa.
The country equally uses the BRT system, has over 305 BRT buses, and transports 300,000 passengers daily.
In 2018, the country also became the first African country to win the Sustainable Transport Award 2018.
Here are some of the social media reactions to the news:
@tonyalfredk commented: “I’m from Tanzania. We also have trains that go 600km/hr. Most big cities like Dar es Salaam, Mwanza and Arush have intercity trains, you can actually work 200km from your home and always be on time because of how effective the transport system is.”
@Tesla_jr10 said: “Good to know that most of Africa is not underdeveloped. Kudos to Tanzania.”
