Visitors will find a number of transport options. The Baku Metro is the capital's rapid transport system and consists of more than 20 stations scattered throughout the city. It provides the cheapest way to get around. Baku also has a system of electric trains that serve several locales and surrounding areas. Alternative modes of public transport include buses and minibuses, which can take people almost anywhere in the city. Destinations are clearly marked on the fronts of vehicles.
Taxis in Baku are similar to London's black cabs in style. Travellers can also hire a car in Azerbaijan and a number of car rental companies have offices at the airport. Road conditions and signage are of a good standard in the city. Against that, foreign drivers can sometimes struggle to deal with the erratic behaviour of local road users.
