The municipalities of Maputo, Matola, Boane, the district of Marracuene and others contiguous areas in the province of Maputo will benefit from night-time passenger transport services, running from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., from next May.
Maputo Metropolitan Transport Agency representative Armando Bembele said that a public tender had already been launched to canvas legal entities interested in operating such services.
Speaking to newspaper Noticias, Bembele said creating a 24-hour public transport service was important because the quality of life in a city depended very much on the characteristics of its passenger transport system.
“The need to travel does not always follow a predefined schedule, because there are always urgencies, and also there are other, planned movements at night, such as emergency services, shift workers, and other night-time economic activities,” Bembele said.
The tender terms of reference indicate that the fare to be charged per passenger for night-time journeys will be 35 meticais, regardless of the passenger’s origin or destination.Source: AIM Moçambique
