Yerevan has an extensive public transport network, predominately served by numerous bus and trolley lines. There are also minibuses, known locally as marshrutka, which operate on various routes in the city. While they are a cheap mode of transport, vehicles are usually overcrowded. The Yerevan Metro has just a single line with 10 stations on it, but many people use the service each day. Yerevan also has a central train station which is connected to the metro system; from here, one can catch intercity trains to other destinations in Armenia or to neighbouring Georgia. Train services also connect Yerevan's city centre to suburbs such as Armavie, Gyumri, Yeraskh, Ararat, Hrazdan and Shorzha. Taxis are abundant in Yerevan and there are lots of different taxi companies operating in the city, so prices are competitive. It is easy to flag an empty taxi down on the street. Visitors are advised to ensure the driver has the meter turned on before the start of a taxi ride. Those with an international driving licence can hire a car in Yerevan.
