Taxis, buses, and walking are the three primary modes of transportation in the capital. The majority of visitors prefer to use cabs since they are quite convenient. Before getting into the cab, be sure you and the driver have agreed on a price. Also, keep in mind that traffic in Analakely (Antananrivo’s central and busiest sector) may be considerable during rush hour. If you don’t mind being crammed into a van with strangers, buses, or ‘taxi cab,’ are the most cost-effective mode of transportation, with fares often ranging from MGA200 to MGA400 (compared to MGA5,000 or about USD2 in 2014 or more for a typical taxi ride). Tourists, on the other hand, are often unfamiliar with taxi routes. While Analakely is a vast city, it is rather easy to navigate on foot.
