though visitors don't usually ride city transport in Georgia
here's some useful information in case you do:
is served by variety of public transportation means. Frequencies
on most routes are good. However some of them may be nonfunctional.
Fares in the town could be the cheapest fares experienced. Although
be prepared to sacrifice comfort if you are riding bus or trolley.
As you can tell on these pictures (click to view larger images of
trolleys) most trolleys and busses are beat-up, with non-comfortable
seats and sometimes overloaded with passengers because of non-even
distribution of routes. Disinterested city council doesn't invest
much funds to continue their normal operation. Best and the cheapest
way to move around the city would be by minibus (so-called "marshroutka"),
since minibuses they are privately owned and have established numerous
routes in the city. They are fast and can get you pretty much anywhere
from point A to point B in Kutaisi.
if you are riding bus or trolley beware of thieves who dare to plunge
their hands in passengers' pockets and always look after your luggage
and belongings very carefully, since in case they are stolen police
assistance isn't much helpful.
