RFTC Town Service (old), Rwanda
RFTC Town Service (old)
The main providers of urban services in Kigali until August 2013 were the mini- and midibuses (mainly Toyota Hiace and Toyota Coaster) belonging to the transport cooperatives, united under RFTC. The minibuses were (mostly) white with a yellow band, the midibuses were allover white, although some had advertisements. Buses were heavily competing for passengers and services outside rush hours were limited, with no evening services. No route numbers were used though some of the midibuses had a large sticker with 1, 2, 3 or 4, probably indicating certain zones. While Toyota Hiace and Coaster buses dominated the scene, there were some other buses and even a Setra S315xx was tried. An interesting vehicle was a Toyota -Salvador Caetano ex Portugal.
