transportationThere are many different kinds of transportation wecan use in Accra.There are buses, taxis, ships, trains and airplanes.We are going to use the bus, taxi or train services.What should you know?Taxi- In Ghana taxi drivers (and in fact all businesspeople) have this unwritten and unspoken agreementthat the buyer must always bargain with the seller.So you either ask for a reduction or tell him howmuch you are willing to pay. If he accepts you get onboard if not you look for the next taxi.Buses - Buses are the newest edition to Accra'stransit system. They were introduced on October27, 2002 and run on five different routesthroughout the city. However, there are manyproblems involved in the introduction of buses intoAccra.Train - There are rail links between Accra, Takoradiand Kumasi. The train is very slow and it travels atnight so you won't see much, but with the Ghanatrain system currently undertaking rehabilitation itwill be vastly improved with new stations and fastermore frequent trains.Task 6Ghana by taxiBuses inGhanaOut and aboutGhana RailwayCorporation
