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

No, no, and no. Bring a car/buy a car. - Sep 3, 2017
Local travel is affordable. Taxis within Freetown don't drive fast enough to be really dangerous, traveling upcountry in a local podapoda is more risky. You should not travel outside Freetown at night, there are no street lights and people drive too fast with old cars. - Sep 9, 2014
