Rabat is a relatively small city and so getting around is fairly straightforward and journeys are never long. The easiest way to get around the city is by using the blue 'petit' taxis, which are clearly visible throughout Rabat. Trips within the city cost MAD 10-30. Tourists are advised to ensure that the meters are working to avoid being overcharged. Travelling by bus is also a cheap and convenient way to get around Rabat, and also provide a great opportunity to interact with local Moroccans. Single bus journeys cost MAD 4. Buses in Rabat vary in quality and travellers should be aware of their belongings as pickpockets are known to operate on busy services. There is also a tram line which runs between Rabat and its twin city of Salé. Trams run between 6am and 11pm daily and services operate every 10 minutes during the week and every 20 minutes at weekends. Those who prefer to explore Morocco's capital city at a more leisurely pace will find that most of Rabat's major attractions are accessible on foot. Foreigners are advised not to drive in Rabat as local drivers tend to disobey traffic laws and accidents are common.
