"Transportation in Baku" Azerbaijan Transportation Tip by EllaIrz

Azerbaijan Transportation: 17 reviews and 11 photos

Once you are in Baku you will notice that there are hardly any buses there. People mostly get around by the metro and taxis. Taxis are not at all expensive and the weird thing is that you do not negotiate about the price before you get in the taxi as you do in most former Soviet countries, but you pay as much as you see fit. The minimum price was 3 000 Manat which is less than 1$. There are very many taxis in Baku, they are usually yellow so they are easy to notice. The taxis can also be white, but they will then have a Taxi sign on them. You usually do not order taxis and there are no taxi parkings, but the taxis move around the city. In order to catch a taxi you just wave your hand. For safety reasons take only taxis that have taxi signs on them. You should have no problem finding those in Baku.
