The topography of Dominica presents tremendous challenges to the planning and organization of a transport sector. Nonetheless, Government recognizes the role of transport and logistics in national development. There are approximately 25,000 vehicles in Dominica, not including motor cycles. It is estimated that 10 percent of the market is made up of cars, 20-25 percent are small SUVs and Pick Ups, and the remainder are buses. Sales of new cars average about 300-350 per annum, while about 600 second-hand cars are imported annually. On average these cars are 5-12 years old. Vehicles over 5 years old attract an environmental levy on importation. There are no clear numbers for the split between gasoline and diesel powered vehicles. Local drivers prefer vehicles powered by gas including those used for taxis and public transport vans. In the tourism sector, approximately 70 percent of public taxis are 13-seater mini buses.
