the Société des Transports de Lomé (SOTRAL) will expand its car fleet via a government-backed project worth more than CFA15 billion. 

Announced by the ministry of transport, the project will enable SOTRAL to get new buses, MAN buses notably, a few months from now. 

This project aligns with the fifth axis of the government roadmap, which aims to “make Togo a logistics and services hub in the sub-region.”

The new buses will allow the company to cover new areas in the capital, and later other cities in the country.

It should be recalled that the minister of transport, Affoh Atcha-Dédji, visited last June the headquarters of MAN in Lomé. On the occasion, he could have a look at a prototype of the buses that SOTRAL is expecting.
