Since its launch in 2021, the Train express régional (TER) has changed the daily lives of many Senegalese, who use it instead of buses and cabs to travel to Dakar and its suburb Diamniadio at a lower cost (2 euros). This environmentally-friendly rail infrastructure, part of the Senegal Emerging Plan (PSE), has already prevented the emission of 92,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent. Its second phase is currently underway, with financial support from the West African Development Bank (BOAD).
