Armenia - moving around the country
There is even a trolleybus line in the capital of Armenia and recently the country bought several new trolleybuses. However, the condition of the others leaves much to be desired. Also, tourists can use the services of the subway in Yerevan. Practically every tourist city has taxis. If however you are trying to save money, then it is not worth catching a car on the road, because the prices in his case will be exorbitantly high. If there is no other way out, then you should immediately negotiate the price with the driver. It is best to just call for a taxi by phone. The cost of one kilometer ride is about 100 drams and the minimum trip is not less than 650 drams. The cost of the trip should be checked with the dispatchers during the taxi call. The peculiarities of the interchange in the country are the cable cars. Their development of course is affected by the specific mountainous terrain. In some cases, traveling by cable car can cut down the time of travel by other means of transportation by at least four hours. Also do not forget that there are no traffic jams on the cable cars, and the cost of crossing is relatively cheap.
