  • Description

    NEW IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE IN KINSHASA'S TRANSPORT COMPANY -- THE SOCIETE DE TRANSPORT KINOIS (S.T.K.) -- TO MAKE IT ONE OF THE MOST MODERN IN AFRICA.

    IT WAS ONLY RECENTLY THAT THE COMPANY INTRODUCED SOME OF THE MOST OF TO DATE SINGLE-DECKER BUSES, MADE BY MERCEDES, ON THE BUS ROUTES OF THE CONGOLESE CAPITAL.

    THE SERVICE WILL SOON BE EXTENDED TO OTHER AREAS OF THE COUNTRY.

    IN VIEW OF THE GROWING DEMAND FOR THE SERVICE, S.T.K. HAVE NOW ACQUIRED A SERIES OF TAXIS AND CHAUFFEUR-DRIVEN HIRE CARS FOR THE COMFORT OF TOWN TRAVELLERS.

    THE NEW VEHICLES ARE ALSO MERCEDES AND RANGE FROM THE 280 TO THE LUXURIOUS 600.

    THEY ARE ALL ON RADIO CALL AND EQUIPPED WITH METERS SHOWING THE FARE IN MAKUTAS -- A UNIT OF THE COUNTRY'S CURRENCY.

    S.T.K.'S MANAGER, M. FRANCOIS POTO, INSPECTED THE CHAUFFEURS BEFORE THE VEHICLES STARTED ON THEIR FIRST TRIP.

    SIXTY TAXIS, 32 CHAUFFEUR-DRIVEN HIRE CARS AND FIVE MERCEDES 600'S WITH DRIVERS ARE NOW ON CALL THROUGHOUT KINSHASA.
