Organised vans for transporting people and goods against a fee through the country of madagascar are called taxi-brousse. usually a taxi-brousse station can be found next to the market of the town. destinations and prices are written on the windscreen of each car. a fixed time table does not always exist, most taxi-brousse leave when the car is filled with passengers. paying for empty seats can accelerate the departure to a considerable degree. at long-distance travels the driver will stop for a break at restaurants or street stands.
