    A Car Rapide in Senegal, a common mode of transportation.

    There were an estimated 4,271 km of paved roads and 10,305 km of unpaved roads as of 1996.

    Taxis (black-yellow or blue-yellow in color) are cheap, numerous and available everywhere in Dakar.[1] It is customary to negotiate the fare since most meters installed in the taxis are broken or missing.[1] For travel outside Dakar, public transportation is available but often unreliable and uncomfortable.[1]

    Dakar has one of the largest deep-water seaports along the West African coast.[1] Its deep-draft structure and 640-foot-wide (200 m) access channel allows round-the-clock access to the port.[1] Its current infrastructure includes tanker vessel loading and unloading terminals, a container terminal with a storage capacity of 3000 20-foot-equivalent units, a cereals and fishing port, a dedicated phosphate terminal and a privately run ship repair facility.[1] The port’s location at the extreme western point of Africa, at the crossroad of the major sea-lanes linking Europe to South America, makes it a natural port of call for shipping companies.[1] Total freight traffic averages 10 million metric tons.[1]


    Transport in Senegal Airports


    Air Senegal International is Senegal's flag carrier.

    There were an estimated 20 airports in 1999. The Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport at Dakar is the hub of the sub-region.[1] Dakar is linked to numerous African cities by air, and daily flights go to Europe.[1] Delta Air Lines flies daily to/from Atlanta/Dakar/Johannesburg.[1] South African Airways flies daily to New York and Washington, D.C. from Johannesburg via Dakar.[1]

    A new international airport which carries the name of Blaise Diagne is under construction at Diass.[2]
