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

No, public transportation doesn't exist beyond taxis which are off limits to expat mission personnel. - Aug 20, 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 7, 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 15, 2012
