Most visitors to Baltimore will head for the compact Inner Harbour and downtown areas, which are easy to navigate on foot or by public transport. Water taxis act like a bus service and are a cheap and convenient way to get around the Inner Harbour, servicing many attractions as well as other districts. The inexpensive bus network connects all parts of the city and is an easy way of getting around, although usually involving a number of transfers. The metro and light rail system provide limited coverage, mainly aimed at commuters, connecting downtown with the northern and southern suburbs. Taxis are usually ordered by phone, but they can be found at taxi ranks or hailed on the street. Driving in central Baltimore is unnecessary and not recommended due to difficult and expensive parking, but the layout is fairly easy and congestion limited to rush hour.
