How to get around within Vladivostok
In an effort to improve traffic, the trams and trolleybuses that used to serve Vladivostok have been removed. The most common modes of public transportation used nowadays are the buses and marshrutka shared taxis. Both generally follow the same routes. Buses tend to be crowded but are frequent, radiating from outside the "Clever House" (Cløver House) Department store. There’s a number of taxi companies in the city. The taxis in Vladivostok are unmetered, but most charge the same flat rate for an hour. The flat rate is negotiable, especially if you're only going a short distance, but be prepared to have to shell out the full rate or find another taxi.
