There is a large and efficient network of blue and white minibuses that cover the city which are easy to hail from the side of the road. The cost ranges from 0.70 Br for short trips, to 1.55 Br or more for a longer trip. It is worth having an Ethiopian guide with you if it is your first time using these taxis. Small blue coloured taxis are more expensive. They range from 10 Br for a very short journey, to about 35 Br for a cross-town trek.
