Kigali's urban transport network is one of the most modern and best organized in Africa. Most buses today are equipped with Wi-Fi and public transport is safe and comfortable. Several lines pass on the KN5 road and provide a stop within 400 metres of the terminal. Travel rates are per single trip (RWF 300 on average), per day (600 RWF) or monthly (RWF 10,000) and are particularly advantageous.
