Commercial buses, widely known as trotro, are the most popular means of transportation in Ghana.

Many people do not enjoy using them because they are mostly rickety and it is inconvenient being transported in them. However, they are affordable, so commuters tend to prefer them to taxis and 'okadas', which are relatively expensive.

Here are 12 pictures that only people who use trotro regularly will understand:
