Urban Transport
Bishkek is served by taxis, buses and trolleybuses. Public transport is cheap and generally reliable. Bishkek is an easy, inexpensive city to get around it. It is on a grid and relatively small capital city, so navigating on foot or by car is easy. The mountains to the south are nearly always in view. Bishkek is wide and flat, and it's "center" is regarded as most interestingly large percentage of the overall city, usually including the area of Sovietskaya to Manas several blocks on either side of Chui. Public transportation (mini-buses and trolleybuses) usually runs from 5:30 or 6:00 in the morning till 9:00 or 9:30 at night. Taxis can be found in all major towns. They are readily available and cheap. Travelers must agree a fare in advance, and not share taxis with strangers. As many of the street names have changed since independence, it is also advisable to ascertain both the old and the new street names when asking directions. It is best to give a landmark that is close to your destination, and when going to restaurants, mentioning the intersection of two streets (like Chui-Turusbekova) is better than saying "The Metro pub". Car hire is not available. Cars with a driver can be hired in travel agencies by the trip, by the hour or by the day or week. A number of taxi calling services exists (order by phone at any time).
