There are public buses and pick-ups in Yangon but they seemed always overcrowded and in cases of pick up you needed strong muscles to keep balance in the vehicle's back!
Taxis are available everywhere (even pirate ones), but like elsewhere they seem to charge whatever they want. Better negotiate before you get in or ask locals how much they pay for your specified distance.
Another alternative (but not cheaper) is bicycles. Romantic, slow and certainly recommended for short distances without heavy traffic.
