  Inside the Metro Mass bus
by Pieter11

Another way of transportation by bus is Metro Mass. This is a bus company with less luxurious busses then the STC, with cheaper rates and with routes that, unlike STC, also cross bad, bumpy roads. They also connect the bigger cities of the country, but with more connections and more often than the STC ones.

The Metro-Mass busses most of the times depart from a Tro-Tro-station, but in other places they sometimes have their own station. All the busses are easy to recognise: they are all orange. The rates are more or less the same as the rates of the Tro-Tro, but as disadvantage that they only leave once or twice a day to most destinations, and that they charge luggage-fees.

Metro-Mass sells their tickets starting a day before departure, and it is often wise to buy them as soon as possible, because otherwise you take the risk of having to stand all the while. Metro Mass doesn't see it as a problem to sell 80 tickets for a bus where only 45 people can sit in. Sometimes people have to stand for 5 hours in these busses.

One last thing: be prepared that these busses (as far as I can tell) ALWAYS leave too late. Waiting for two hours is normal...
