Having a car in busy Belgrade is often more of a liability than an asset, the traffic being hectic and parking in the city limited. The best way to get around the city is on public transport, which consists of hundreds of buses, trams and trolley buses. It is wise to avoid rush hour. Tickets for all types of transportation can be bought from kiosks in the streets. Tickets can be bought from the drivers, but these are more expensive. If you need to ask directions be aware it is best to approach a younger person, as most elderly Belgrade residents will not understand English. Taxis are cheap and safe, and can be hailed in the street. Ensure that you pick a licensed taxi: these are indicated with a small blue sign featuring the city's coat of arms and a number. Privately owned taxis, sporting a white marker on the roof, are likely to be extremely expensive.
