There are a number of transport options available in Baku. The Baku Metro is the city's rapid transport system which consists of more than 20 stations scattered throughout the city. The Metro provides the cheapest way to get around. Baku also has a system of electric trains which serve several parts of the city and surrounding areas. Alternative modes of public transport include buses and minibuses which can take people almost anywhere in the city. Destinations are clearly marked on the front of the vehicle. Taxis in Baku are similar to London's black cabs in style. Travellers can also hire a car in Azerbaijan and a number of car rental companies have offices at the airport. While road conditions and signage are of a good standard in Baku, foreign drivers can sometimes struggle to deal with the erratic behaviour of local road users.
