Provincial government increases number of buses in the capital to meet demand

The streets of the capital are expected to receive new buses soon. The Luanda Provincial Government (LPG) has decided to move ahead with strengthening public passenger transport in Luanda to meet the high demand, however, there is still no date for these new buses to begin operating.


Joana Lina, governor of Luanda, explained, quoted by Angop, that the aim of this reinforcement is to facilitate the transport process in the city.

The problems and deficiencies in Luanda's transport system were accentuated by the covid-19 pandemic. Now buses can only run at half capacity, leading to often full stops, queues becoming endless, and sometimes many passengers cannot board immediately and have to wait for the next bus.

Joana Lina lamented the scenario that has been going on in the capital, admitting that passengers often push or struggle "to get on the transport" and may be "contributing to the increase of infected people".

She also said that the LPG is "coordinating with the Ministry of Transport and the various operators of Luanda" this strengthening and that by Friday will have "the general framework on what will be implemented at the level of this city, to help the population to move without major constraints.

She also called on everyone to try to comply strictly with the guidelines given by the health authorities: "We are in a phase that we have to fight for life, obeying the guidelines". This is the only way to respect "our family, colleagues, friends and people who live with us directly".
