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

Yes. Alas Uber got ousted though. - Dec 12, 2017
Yes, yes. - Jan 23, 2012
You can purchase a monthly transportation pass that is good for the metro, the tram and busses---it costs something like $40/month. - Apr 28, 2010
Taxis are safe if you call them. Public transport is affordable although slightly less extensive than you might want. Trains are a great way to get around. Keep in mind -- not too much English spoken and this can be an issue in navigating transport. - Feb 24, 2008
