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

Because we live so far out of the city center, I have never taken public transport. Buses and trams are considered very, very safe and cheap. Taxis are plentiful, metered and safe. Uber is new here. - Apr 8, 2016
Yes to both, although you should stick to marked taxis with a meter. - Aug 5, 2014
Safe and affordable. - Jun 16, 2014
The local bus/tram in about US$2 for a few hours of riding. Taxis are pretty reasonable. I would only recommend a company called EcoTaxi. They are very good, clean and consistently priced. Most other cabs will charge you different rates all the time. - Feb 18, 2014
Both safe and affordable. Public transportation is reliable and makes it easy to get around town. - Jan 25, 2012
Yes. very safe. Trams are on every corner in the center of town. - Dec 16, 2011
Trams and buses are affordable and relible, but taxis are expensive and rare to find around the city. Almost 100% of Croatians use trams and buses though, because they are so efficient. - Oct 16, 2010
Bus and tram systems are cheap, safe, and easy to use. Taxis aren't cheap. - Mar 23, 2009
Trams and buses service all of the city very efficiently. Buses are also very good to reach smaller towns. I have not used trains, but they are available especially to go towards Austria and Hungary. - Mar 2, 2009
