Santo Domingo Transport
There are several ways to get around in Santo Domingo. The city is serviced by large buses, as well as minibuses, which are cheaper than taxis but can be very crowded. Taxis are plentiful and radio-taxis usually respond quickly, with helpful and accommodating drivers who are used to dealing with tourists. Fares must be negotiated before leaving. Another option is a publico, or multi-passenger taxi; fares depend on length of trip. Santo Domingo is relatively easy to negotiate, though roads can be in poor condition, and car rental agencies are available. These usually require a valid drivers licence and credit card, with a minimum age of 21.
