By Taxi and Dolmuş

Provincial taxis are somewhat expensive; fares generally work out somewhere near $1 per km traveled. It's best to take a taxi from an established taxi stand, where you see several lined up, since the drivers there will be regulars and if you should have a dispute or lose something, it is much easier to retrace the car that way. It's normal, however, to hail taxis in the street. For longer journeys, you may both wish to settle a price in advance, but normally, within city limits, the taxi driver should automatically switch on the meter when you get in. As elsewhere, if he doesn't, insist upon it.
