These are “car rapides”, one of the most popular forms of transit in Senegal. The cost to ride one is between 100 and 200 CFA (less than 50 cents) depending on the distance one is traveling. As you can see these car rapides have been around for quite some time and aren’t in the best conditions. There is also always space for more (like most places in Senegal) and so everyone inside is mushed and once it’s full there are a few people who hold on to the back
