Getting there & around
All transport leaves from the bus station near Harar Gate. Bountiful minibuses link to Dire Dawa (Birr10, one hour). Seven daily buses serve Jijiga (Birr13, 2½ to three hours) via Babille (Birr8, 45 minutes), while two access Addis Ababa (Birr55, one day). Buy tickets a day early. Several minibuses also serve Addis Ababa (Birr100, nine to 10 hours) – ask at your hotel.
Shared/contract taxis cost Birr1/5 for short hops.
