Monrovia Transport


There is no official public transport system in Monrovia. Taxi cabs operate across the city, but these are not always the safest means of getting around; they are shared taxis and drivers will often stop to pick up other passengers along the way.

Robberies and pickpocketing have been reported in shared taxis, and it's best to rather try hire a taxi exclusively for your own trip. Motorbike taxis are a popular mode of transport, but although they are relatively cheap and convenient, they are also not reliably safe.

Local buses travel along set routes in the city, but they are also best avoided due to safety concerns as they are often overcrowded and hotspots for pickpocketing. Car hire is available, and a recommended option is to hire a car with a driver. A four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended for travel outside of Monrovia due to the poor road conditions.
