    Dakar Mobilité has officially announced its partnership with Wave for cashless payments on the BRT system. The collaboration, unveiled by Wave Senegal, will enable future BRT passengers to make payments seamlessly.

    “Last Friday, on May 3rd, Wave and Dakar Mobilité finalized their partnership at the Gadaye headquarters. Through this new alliance, individuals holding a Wave account can now pay for their BRT journeys without incurring any fees,” stated the fintech company. They emphasized that “this partnership signifies a significant stride in incorporating innovative payment solutions, with the aim of enhancing accessibility for customers and simplifying their daily commutes.”

    As a reminder, the Senegalese government, recognizing the need for sustainable solutions to alleviate traffic congestion in the capital, initiated the “Bus Rapid Transit on Dedicated Lanes” project, commonly known as BRT. Managed by the Executive Council of Urban Transport in Dakar (CETUD), this transportation initiative will connect the Prefecture of Guédiawaye to the Petersen bus station, covering a distance of 18.3 kilometers. With an overall budget of nearly 300 billion FCFA, the BRT system is designed to accommodate up to 300,000 passengers daily.
