You can also take buses around the city. But the locals do not use it too much and the busiest bus service runs between Fukuoka and the airport. Some bus lines are linked to metro and transport can be easily combined. Information on timetables and fares can be easily found on the spot.
There is also a taxi in the city. You can call him only on the street or in the places where the taxi is usually standing. For us Europeans, it is a relatively inexpensive way of transport, and taxis are on every corner. However, it is important to arrange the price in advance, otherwise, you are at risk that your local taxi drivers will get you more money than you would like.
However, we recommend that you use the UBER application, where you have the first free coupon for free!
