Government taxis are colored light green or light yellow and have fixed prices. Private taxis must have the name of the company and their phone number on the taxi. Although meters exist, one would do best to watch them closely. If possible, negotiate a price beforehand, or at least get an approximation. Ordering a taxi by phone is the safest way to avoid unscrupulous drivers that overcharge, which is a common problem in the city. Passengers can also avoid the so-called 8-25 Kr "waiting fee" that cabs charge when you find them on the street. Marshrut-taxis are minbuses operating on fixed routes that seat up to 10 persons.
