Hailing a cab here is the easy part. The problem? Locals are more than happy to offer cab services, without the fuss of a license or any organization backing them. Meanwhile, marshrutkas—brightly colored minivans—would seem like a more standardized mode of transport, except that these buslike cabs are consistently known for high speeds and reckless driving. One of them made news in late 2009 when it swerved out of its lane and caused an accident, killing eight.

A Better Ride: While legit cabs are most likely to be by the train stations or hotels, your best bet is to have your hotel call and order a cab from a reputable taxi company.
