By Metro

The first stretch of the Algiers Metro eventually opened on November 1, 2011, after more than three decades of development (or lack thereof). Line 1 runs from Tafourah Grande Poste in the city center, just south of Gare d’Alger, the major train station, to Ha El Badr, stopping at some of the city’s most significant locations.

Tickets may be bought at the station from either a ticket machine (which accepts many languages but just coins, not including 200s) or an employee. A single trip ticket costs 150 Dinar, while a ten-trip ticket costs 400 Dinar.

By Taxi

In Algiers, taxis are a quick and inexpensive method to get about. They may be located at taxi stands, but you should haggle over the price before getting in the car. A gratuity is not required, although it is acceptable if the service was exceptional.

By Bus

Buses run throughout the city and to the suburbs; tickets cost 20 dinar and may be bought on the bus. When you board, a guy usually approaches you with a bundle of tickets.
