EXPRESS TAXI BOOKING CENTRE
The proximity to important urban centers of France and Spain, and the geographical location of Andorra favor the access to the country through an extensive network of communications: bus, train, car and plane will allow you to quickly reach the Principality.
Two regular lines connect the parishes and the main stops are on the busiest roads in the urban centres. The tickets can be bought on the bus itself. The services usually run from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Express bus: his is the fastest, most frequent line which connects the urban centres of each parish to the capital. The route crosses the country on side roads to avoid the town and village centres. The express bus is identified by its orange colour, and the stops are located in the outskirts of the towns and villages.
Interurban lines: The interurban public transport service connects all of the towns on six different lines crossing the urban centres. Each parish has a municipal transport service which connects the small villages not covered on the main routes. You will find the stops in the main streets and avenues of the urban centres. www.transportpublic.ad
Unlike other countries of Europe, the taxi service is usually given from the taxi ranks or by booking by telephone. The taxi ranks are generally in the most central streets of the shopping areas.
