-18 March 2019: SABE Transport puts into service three new Zhong Tong coaches for the route Doropo-Bouna-Abidjan, two of which will do the full trip of 634 km along the country’s eastern border. The third one re-enforces the Bouna-Abidjan (559 km). See the SABE page.

Ivory Coast has a large number of private bus and coach companies covering the main routes. Especially the corridor Abidjan-Yamoussoukro-Bouaké and further north to Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger has an important number of large coaches.
Secondary and rural routes are mostly covered by small vehicles, called Mbaka. Nowadays these are mostly secondhand Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Vario buses, though some Saviem/Renault SG2, the famous “taxi brousse” survive.

On these pages we will give an overview of the various coach and bus companies, starting with the larger ones.
