Are local buses, trams, trains or taxis safe and affordable?
Podgorica is as small city, with a town feeling, but there are a few bus lines available. Since everything is so close, you might as well take a taxi. Half way across the city might cost like 3 Euros, and to the airport it's about 8. Trains run locally and internationally (Bar-Belgrade), but buses are better connected. In an hour, you might be at the coast or up in the mountains. Not to mention the neighboring countries: Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania. Consider that Podgorica is almost in the center of the country, which makes it convenient to choose from a variety of options. Do use it, because the city itself doesn't give you too much. - Jul 2020
Yes. Trains do go to the coast, but I have heard it is so smokey you wouldn't want to ride it. I have never used buses, but I have heard that they are okay. Taxis are fine, and you can get around town for no more than 3 Euro. - Aug 2010
