With the introduction of the motor bike in Kumba many years back, there is a constant fight for passengers between taxi drivers and bike riders. Taxi drivers have been complaining of not having many passengers since the motor bikes came into Kumba.

Even though there is a high rate of motor bike accidents in Kumba which leads to the loss of many lives, many people still prefer the motor bikes to taxis. This is because the bikes are more convenient, as they are sure to take passengers right to their door posts.

Talking to a taxi driver whose only name we got as Collins, He revealed that   he has been a taxi driver for more than 10 years.  “The amount of money I used to take home at the end of the day has reduced as the years go by because most people prefer bikes” he said.

On the part of the Bike riders, they are happy because they have won the minds of most of the passengers. At night, say from about 10:00pm, they are the ones who ply the roads as it is very difficult to find taxis at this time.

The inhabitants are just hoping that measures will be put in place to ensure their safety, no matter the means of transportation they prefer.
