GTSC The Gambia Transport Service Company has launched its Express Banjul-Dakar-Banjul International service.
The Banjul-Dakar Express Service is a non-stop journey from Banjul to Dakar and Dakar-Banjul three times in a week that is Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. A luxury coach with air conditioning, fans, refreshments, in-bus entertainment, Wi-Fi, seat belts, curtains, fire extinguishers, and first aid kits are some of the available facilities on this service.
Officials at the company’s marketing department said with this unique express service, passengers can now leave The Gambia and travel on a direct trip to Dakar in comfort and speed- thus saving customers several hours off their journey time relative to other services.
“Currently, passengers normally have to utilize three different connecting transports to get to Dakar i.e. travelling from the Kombos to Amdalie and catching another vehicle to Karang and subsequently embarking on a final one from Karang to Dakar. However, with the introduction of this new service, customers are assured a direct trip to Dakar,” Fabuka Njaay GTSC Marketing Manager said.
It could be recalled that the GTSC company launched its first international services early this year and since then it has extend the same services to three different countries in the sub-region from Banjul.
