Downtown Toulouse is fairly flat and compact, so visitors can comfortably see most sights on foot or by bicycle. Farther journeys can be taken via the city's public transport, which includes bus, tram and metro lines throughout the city, with tickets starting at €1.60. There are also free green shuttle bus circling the historic city centre, which can be hailed. Taxi service in Toulouse is considered poor, and must be pre-booked. Driving in the city can be frustrating as parking is extremely limited, and hiring a car is not recommended unless for excursions outside of town.
