Motorcycle Taxis Fill The Busy Streets Of Kigali

KIGALI, RWANDA - APRIL 10: A motorcycle taxi passenger gets back on his feet after his driver crashed the cycle while avoiding a collision near the Nyabugogo neighborhood bus park April 10, 2014 in Kigali, Rwanda. Called 'boda-boda' in East Africa, the motorcycles dominate the roads in Kigali, a city build on a serise of hills and valleys. Many drivers pay dues and belong to co-operatives which represent their interests with local and central government agencies. As motorcycles cost more than 1.3 million Rwandan Francs (or about $1900 US), many riders pay a weekly fee of about $40 US to the bike owners and keep whatever they make beyond that amount. Working 13-hour shifts, boda-boda drivers can carry about 25 passengers on a good day of business. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
