How to get around within Togo

Togo has taxi-motos (motorcycle taxis) to help people without their own vehicles get around. They are easy to spot, as they usually wear baseball caps and sunglasses, and honk or call the attention of people who pass by looking for customers. Regular taxis have yellow license plates, and their registration number should be painted on the car. Negotiate on the price before getting in. The price agreed upon should already include the tip. One may ask for assistance from a security guard to wave down a cab, but a small tip is expected in exchange.
