Getting Around Muscat
Buses are the best and cheapest way to get around in Muscat.
Modern buses travel major roads with specific bus stops. For more
out of the way destinations, Baiza buses are common and zigzag
through the back roads effectively, although the buses themselves
are sometimes a bit dilapidated. Taxies are widely available and an
easy way to get to and from the airport. Insist that the driver
uses their meter unless there isn''t one, in which case agree on a
price before getting into the car. Taxis are expensive but
convenient when you can''t find a bus or don''t want to wait in the
sun. There is no subway or railway in Muscat and some travellers
decide to rent a car and drive themselves around.
