Women and children cram into a car rapides in Dakar, which the city's public transport body says are being phased out due to old age, comfort and the environmental impact of the 40-year old buses.
The car rapides have been a part of the scene in Dakar since 1976 and are used to transport more than people, but have been criticized for being dangerous for a variety of reasons. People hop on and off the back, and many say they're unsafe and commonly have accidents.
