Ghana trotro – T Junction trotro stop at La Palm Hotel

In this picture,  a Ghana trotro Mercedes Sprinter bus slows down to a stop at the T Junction trotro stop in front of the La Palm Royal beach hotel in Accra. This bus is approaching from Osu and east bound to communities like Tema, Nungua and Teshie. It will make about 11 stops but it makes a return journey.

In Ghana, trotro buses have fixed terminals but loose stops. Any point along the road, as far as its spacious and safe to alight, can be designated as a stop. Its cultural for trotro drivers to consider passenger convenience especially those with luggage, merchandise and load.
