The Car Rapide, national heritage,

The car rapide is a multi-colored, atypical and emblematic means of public transport in Senegal. It is a real work of art, but this is often overlooked because the vehicle pollutes the air and its drivers are quite erratic. The yellow and blue bus is all over Dakar, the capital city. The drawings on its body tell many stories. In 2015, this symbolism earned a place in the Musée de l’Homme in Paris.
