Visitors to Tbilisi have numerous options for getting around, which include by taxi, metro, car, and minibus.
Taxis are one of the best ways of getting around the immediate city, as they can be found almost anywhere. Fares are very affordable, and should never cost more than a few dollars USD. Generally, taxis will be waiting outside of major public areas such as airports, train stations, bus stations, and large hotels. If outside of these areas, the best way to get a taxi is to ask a hotels or restaurants for their help in arranging a ride.
There is an underground train network that connects most major areas around the city of Tbilisi. Although the metro can be an efficient way of getting around Tbilisi, one should take into consideration that all stops are announced in the local Georgian language.
A personal vehicle is the most convenient form of transportation available in Tbilisi, as it allows the greatest freedom and flexibility in travel. First time visitors to the country should investigate the driving rules of Georgia before deciding to get behind the wheel of a car. There are a couple of major car rental agencies located around the Tbilisi International Airport, and around the city.
The city is also serviced by a network of mini buses that drive set routes around Tbilisi. These buses are called Marshrukas in the local language.For more information, check out this Getting around Tbilisi page.
