Are local buses, trams, trains or taxis safe and affordable?

Yes, very affordable and safe. A bit of pickpocketing on the tram, but just use common sense. - Dec 25, 2017
Taxis are safe. People have using local trams and buses at post as well. All affordable. - Sep 26, 2017

Never took a train or bus, but taxis are a plenty and cheap! Many drivers smoke, however. - Aug 19, 2014
The train system is terrible. Taxis are the way to go in town. Incredibly inexpensive. There is no excuse for drunk driving in Sarajevo. You can get from downtown to any of the normal housing areas for $3-5. - Nov 26, 2012

Taxis are VERY affordable. - May 31, 2011
Taxis are safe and cheap. Buses are cheap too, but there are pick pockets, and given the ease of taking a taxi, there's no reason to board a bus. Train service is very limited, but improving. - May 18, 2010
We were advised not to use the buses or trams due to pickpockets. But my daughter and son rode them all the time without problems. Taxis are very safe and I think very affordable. Buses and trams are very cheap. - Jun 19, 2009
Taxis are cheap and convenient. You never have to wait for more than 3 minutes. - Dec 17, 2008
