GTSC to add 33 new buses

Sep 13, 2021, 2:10 PM

The Gambia Transport Service Company (GTSC) is expected to add 33 new buses to boost the country’s transport sector.

The contract, which was signed, will see Quantum Net and Espace Motors companies under the QGroup, supply 33 buses to the GTSC

This development followed a successful bidding from the QGroup companies Quantum Net and Espace Motors.

According to officials, this partnership is likely to be a game-changer in helping ease the transport challenges faced on a daily basis by commuters.

Gambia Transport Service Company GTSC is the only public sector transport company with fleets of buses transporting passengers and goods around and outside the country. The country’s transport sector faces challenges including traffic congestion and a poorly planned road network.

Sometimes commuters spend hours on the road before they can reach their destinations.
