Time tables

Line 1 runs regularly from Monday to Sunday. Its operation starts at 6:30 in the morning and ends after 11am. You rarely wait for a train for more than a few minutes, but of course it depends on the specific day, time and busyness of the line. You can find out the exact form of timetables on the spot.

Bus transportation

You can also easily use the bus service in the city. You will use the same fare as the metro. Buses can be used in places where there is no metro, or they can be combined with an underground transport system. You can also get timetable information right on the spot.

Taxi

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!
