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

Ha, there is nothing safe about getting around here. Cabs are available but beware, they will take advantage. I would not get on a bus. - Sep 26, 2017
Safe? Only as safe as the individual drivers. Affordable, yes -- but taxi drivers are notorious for overcharging gullible foreigners. Public transportation is pretty bad. - Jul 8, 2009
