Public Taxi

You can get either a pick-up van or a microbus, in the company of a lot of other passengers going to various destinations. However, for a slightly increased cost, you can arrange for a more personalized transportation service either with the microbus drivers or with the pick-ups.

There’s also the choice of going with a taxi too as that will be more convenient even if there’ll be some waiting involved.
