No buses, no trams, no trains are available. Taxi safe. - Apr 2021
There are too many security risks to riding in taxis (multiple passengers, targets of police traffic checks, no universal driving standards) and rental cars are scarce and costly, so anyone moving here should bring a car. There is no rail or bus service. - Jul 2020
No, public transportation doesn't exist beyond taxis which are off limits to expat mission personnel. - Aug 2017
No trains or buses. Only taxis. Taxis are cheap (US$1 for a ride) but not recommended to take because of their poor quality. - Sep 2014
Affordable, yes. Safe, no. Taxis are in disrepair and drivers are undisciplined and often drunk. Taxis are the only form of “public” transportation and are not recommended. - Jun 2012
