Culture and Metro Taxi: The best friend of the tourists who want this option to explore. The subway opened in 1983, full of educational public service announcements designed to alert offenses would not be allowed. Against all expectations, the ads were a success. The Metro is clean, quiet, well maintained, no graffiti and the quiet is amazing with his instrumental music in the background. Since its opening, the Metro has extended its original line from east to west and added a section from north to south. It is why, above ground, Caracas shows sometimes quiet. There are tens of thousands of taxis, taxis, private cars with any Caraqueño are enough to make the city traffic at rush hour. The fate of Caracas is having a great mountain that is called the lung of the city of Caracas. Air quality is very good.

Taxis are easily hailed in the street and are quite cheap. They have no meters so prices should be agreed before getting some reports that the situation has improved and there published fixed rates. Caracas traffic is notoriously bad and the subway is a better choice if your destination is conveniently located near a station. Licensed taxis have yellow plates and while some cars with white patches are also taxis, it is usually safer to take a taxi license. Venezuela taxi drivers can be cited that nearly double the actual price when asked how much a breeze. Bargaining is perfectly acceptable in this case. Just answer a reasonable price they are willing to pay, and is more than likely you may be in the middle. If the driver continues to quote an outrageous price, just walk away and try another.

The subway system is backed by a network of metrobuses coming out of subway stations and fixed routes to take certain areas of the city not served by the metro. Like the subway, Metrobus are cheap and clean, but passengers complain about the shortage of buses. Most services run only every 20 minutes. The buses have fixed stops and not picking up passengers at other locations. The ubiquitous minibuses, or "Filed under Books, runs along many major roads in Caracas, often end up in obscure suburbs that are not accessible by subway. They may be signs anywhere and usually can ask the driver to let you jump every time you stop, as traffic lights. Although it is sometimes useful (to reach the entrance of Sabas Nieves Avila from the subway station Altamira), buses are more expensive than the subway ($ 0.50 a ride), slower, and are always in a condition a somewhat poor.
