  Le truck
by Helga67
 
 

Some islands have a bus service around the island. Transportation is done by "Le truck".

Le truck is a brightly painted wooden cabin mounted on the rear of a flatbed truck. In de cabin you will find wooden benches along each side of the cabin and sometimes one in the middle.

Each Le truck has a specific route, with the destination usually painted on the top or sides of the vehicle.

They have started to replace these folkloric vehicles by modern, air-conditioned buses. So in a couple of years you will no longer see them.
