This service costs a little bit more than normal taxi.  


You can reach the airport by bus number 8, which can be accessed from the city center. This bus line operates between 06:00 and 21:00. Since bus is the only public transport you can use to get to the airport, it is not possible to get to the airport by public transport from the city center if your flight is at night.

Hotel Shuttle

Cars that work as a taxi in Dakar are quite old, but they are often preferred for fast and cheap transportation.

Car Rental

You can rent a car suitable for your budget by contacting the car rental offices located in the city center. You can find both extremely cheap as well as luxury car options. If you are renting the car only for the last day to get to the airport, it is a convenience to ask for a car with a driver. The hotel you are staying at can also help you about car rental.
