This small town exists for 2 reasons Fort Bullen, built by the British to guard the Gambia river entrance, now just a shell of a building with a few cannon barrells lying around,the second reason is the ferry from North Bank to Banjul the capital,after the ferry closes so does the town.
The "Bus" station at Barra, locally called Barra Garage has been moved from near the ferry terminal to beside fort Bullen,about a 10 Min. walk away the reason is that the ferry terminal is under development as part of the plan brought about by the making of a good road from the border town of Amdalye,"Busses" are normally 12 seater minivans or occasionaly NEW green school busses owned by the state.
Taxis are available to take you anywhere but bargain for a fare first.
Although confused the system does work.
The BUS STATION has now been moved back to its original place by the ferry terminal after "resurfacing and modernisation"Related to:
