In Kigali and most of Africa taxi cars are hard to find but Motos are everywhere. Motos are motorcycles and scooters which are single seat taxis and are incredibly cheap, usually less than a dollar. The bikes are EVERYWHERE!!!! If you try to hail a moto and try and negotiate where you are going and how much for more than about 30 seconds you will have 2-3 more motos circling you and trying to give you a better deal.
The bikes are government regulated and drivers are required to wear a helmet and have a helmet for the rider as well. My only complaint is that they are sooooooo cold at night! We want to just go on moto rides at night for fun even if we have no destination but we figured it would be too hard to relay to a driver, “just drive me around and bring me back.”
That’s all, short post. I wish I had some pictures for you and will try to get them uploaded ASAP in London or Lisbon.
