Modes of Transport:
Public transport in Baku includes the metro, buses and taxis.
Since September 2015, Baku has started phasing in a prepaid card system called the BakıKart, which can be purchased at metro stations and certain bus stops. There are two versions of the card – a plastic one costing 2 AZN plus credit that can be reused, and a disposable paper one costing 0.30 AZN which allows up to four credits (i.e. four rides will cost AZN 1.20). For now, the system is only used by the metro and most buses, but it is likely that the system will be extended in the future.
Buses are an inexpensive way to travel in Baku. Bus schedules are generally available at bus stops on the electronic screens. City buses cost 0.30 AZN for per ride. For most services, you pay cash as you get off. However, all of the new red busses and some other ones accept only prepaid BakıKart credit.
Only the capital, Baku, has a metro system, which operates between 06:00 a.m. and 12:00 a.m. Stations, trains and facilities are clean and safe, with trains running every two to three minutes. There are two lines, the Red Line (18,36 Km), which goes from Icharishahar station to Hazi Aslanov station, and the Green Line (16,3 Km), which runs from Khatai station to Darnagul station.
