There are many options for getting around Santo Domingo. Public transport is easily available. This includes public cars (carro publico), buses (guagua) and motorbike taxis (motoconcho) and the new metro line providing quick transportation between Villa Mella and the Centro de los Heroes.


Private taxis are available 24 hours a day and can be called by telephone. The phone operator will tell you what the rate should be for your journey. It is also recommended to ask for the taxi number and the color of the vehicle when calling. This way you can be sure that you are getting to the taxi you asked for. Dominican taxis do not use meters - there are flat rates for each destination. Remember, the farther you go, the more expensive the ride. Always confirm the price with the driver prior to departing - you may give him a piece of paper and let him write the fare, to avoid misunderstandings.·
