Msamvu Bus Terminal is located in Morogoro municipality in Tanzania. It is an International Bus Terminal. The main concern is congestion of buses, especially from 09:00 to 10:30 am when most of the buses arrived from Dar es Salaam on the way to other regions and neighbouring countries. Also, buses from southern highlands and neighboring southern countries which are Malawi and Zambia together with those from Lake zone (Mwanza, Shinyanga, Tabora, Simiyu, Dodoma and Mara) converge at Msamvu Bus Terminal during late hours (4:00pm to 7:30pm) making the station too congested.[according to whom?]

On 10 August, 2019, the Morogoro tanker explosion occurred after an oil tanker turned over near this bus terminal, killing 75.[1]
