Monrovia in detail

Flights & getting there

Flights arrive at Roberts International Airport, 60km southeast of Monrovia, from where a taxi into the city costs around US$80. There is also the little-used Spriggs Payne Airport (MLW) in Sinkor.

Bush taxis for Robertsport and the Sierra Leone border leave from Duala Motor Park, 9km northeast of the town centre. Transport for most other domestic destinations leaves from the Red Light Motor Park, Monrovia's main motor park, 15km northeast of the centre. Nearby Guinea Motor Park has buses heading to Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire.
