Government acquires twenty-two new articulated buses

The Mozambican government has just acquired twenty-two new articulated buses to minimize the problem of public transport in the greater Maputo metropolitan area.

The vehicles, which entered the country this Saturday via the Ressano Garcia border crossing in the Moamba district, are part of a partnership between the Mozambican transport sector and the South African private sector.

Without specifying the amount of money involved, the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Ambrósio Sitoe, said that the newly arrived machimbombos respond to the reality of the country and are not the end.

The buses will start operating in January on at least six routes that have already been defined, including: Lower Maputo City to Tchumene, Lower Maputo City to Boane and some along the Maputo ring road.

22 new articulated buses for public passenger transport in greater Maputo entered through the Ressano Garcia border crossing, through which several citizens also crossed into Mozambique less than 48 hours before Family Day.
