Rwanda Bus Company Prepares To Launch New Routes And Expand Tanzania Bus Service

Rwandan bus company, Trinity Express has announced the launch of several new routes during the early part of 2015 with initial prospects in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania followed by additional routes in Burundi and Eastern Congo.

According to Col. Twahira Dodo, the Managing Director of Trinity Express, the new Kigali-Dar es Salaam route will begin in May 2015.

“We are in final stages of preparations and expect to start operating this particular route by May this year,” he said in an interview with the New Times, “We are very confident that the decision will help connect Rwanda with the coast line thus opening more opportunities for our business community.”

Trinity Express is currently one of the largest bus operators between Kigali and Kampala in Rwanda and has planned the new bus route to run along the Central Transport Corridor and cross into Tanzania at the border point in Rusumo at the same location where a bridge was built and opened using financing from the Japanese International Cooperation Agency JICA.
