Senegal - Dakar-Diamniadio-AIBD Regional Express Train Project - Phase I: Dakar-Diamniadio Segment - Appraisal Report


The configuration of the Dakar Region and its role within the national economy underscore the urgent need to build a public transport system that satisfies the growing travel needs of the locality. Only 16% of the estimated 12.5 million trips per day recorded within the Dakar metropolitan area in 2015 were effected by public transport, including 0.20% (25,000) by the Petit train de Banlieue[Little Suburban Train]-(PTB) that plies the Dakar-Rufisque railroad.
