I did not travel by bus in Tripoli, and I probably would have needed some time to understand the transportation system. There are taxis, (black and white) and then yellow and white vehicles, shared taxis, some operating in the city, other yellow and white but bigger probably going to the suburbs or further, then small buses, and finally big buses going to the countryside. There are numerous bus-stations which, even early morning are already crowded. The bus drivers have a hard job (picture3)

    Buses and transportation in Tripoli and all of Libya is an absolute chaos.What country in the world puts speed ramps on motorway without even having light to show in the night.

    And those small, really old, polluting vans Libyans call buses is so bizarre.
