Haitian tap-tap bus – by Jan Sochor

Posted by rod - 25.01.2010

Tap-tap vehicles serve as public transportation in Haiti. They are private, operate over fixed routes, departing only when full. Tap-taps are decorated with bright and shiny colors and with a lot of fancy designed elements. There are scenes from the Bible, Christian slogans, TV stars or famous football players often painted on a tap-tap body. Tap-tap name comes from sound of taps on the metal bus body signifying a passenger’s request to be dropped off. Photography by Jan Sochor
