Nice pictures, especially given the dearth of information about transit systems in Africa.

Giving some knowledgment in Board about African transportation systems (especially in the Portuguese-speaking Africa). I visited Luanda last year, and that I know of this needed bus increase is an effort to retire the importance of the collective taxis (called Kandongueiros) in this region.
