Apart from airport arrivals, taxis don’t cruise for business, so you’ll need to seek them out. While a few have functioning meters, you’ll usually need to negotiate a price. Town trips start at Mtc100.
Chapas can be hailed anywhere, and prices are fixed. Intra-city fares average Mtc5; long-haul fares are usually slightly higher than the bus fare for the same route. The most comfortable seat is in the front, next to the window, though you’ll have to make arrangements early and sometimes pay more.
Chapa drivers are notorious for their unsafe driving and there are many accidents. Where possible, bus is always a better option.
