Getting Around

The Baku Metro is one of many options for getting around and consists of more than 20 stations scattered throughout the city. Baku's electric trains, buses and minibuses are also good transport options, as they serve several locales and surrounding areas. Taxis in Baku are similar to London's black cabs in style; Bolt and Uber are available. Travellers who want to hire a car will find that many car rental companies have offices at the airport. Road conditions and signage are of a good standard in the city, though foreign drivers sometimes struggle to deal with the erratic behaviour of local road users.
