To move about, use a taxi-moto (motorcycle taxi) for 150-500 CFA. Taxi-moto drivers may be identified by their honking or hissing as they pass by, and they typically wear baseball hats and sunglasses. For a one-way short journey inside the city, a taxi will typically cost about 500 CFA; however, expect to spend up to 2,500 CFA for excursions to the city’s northern areas. Taxis will be painted with yellow license plates and their registration number. Always haggle before boarding or entering; the stated price will include a tip!
When you’re on a side street, it may sometimes be useful to ask a security officer to hail a taxi for you. It is anticipated that the tipping point will be between 300 and 600 CFA.
