Tricycle a type of Auto rickshaw. A typical form of mass transportation in the Philippines. They charge about AUS .25 cent not a great deal with the distance they travel and motivation they have, its a regular motorcycle with additional passenger seating. Designs vary but are usually fairly standard within a municipality. Passenger seating is usually in a side car attached to the right side, but some designs seat passengers in a towed trailer or enclose the motorcycle inside of a body structure. Passenger seating capacity varies for different designs, ranging from two up to seven or more. One or two additional passengers may be seated behind the driver, usually riding side-saddle on the motorcycle.
Another popular transportation is the Jeepney, there about AUS 0.30 cents it is basically a colourful jeep that looks like those used by the Americans during word war 2, they have regular stops, as do buses, and will stop if they are flagged down, there are plenty and if you miss one there are always plenty coming behind them, at times I couldn’t believe how many there are on the road.
Buses are available with air conditioning or without, there are similar in prices as Jeepney, the air-conditioned ones charge a little more, worth every cent as it can be muggy in certain times of the year.
Taxis only some are air conditioned and can be found anywhere prices range from AUS $10.00 to $ 25.oo and they are a safe way of traveling through the maize of the City. The yellow taxis are more newer and metered all the time, whether the white ones are city taxis, On occasions a driver will say his meter is broken, if so, travel beware! it is time to get out and find another taxi, as you will probably get overcharged by this scam. I found the newer taxis a re better and always barter with them if you cant there are literary hundreds of others, We found some nice taxi drivers and were so good we used the same one time over time, only a phone call away, all taxis are identified with name and cell phone numbers.
You can also rent a car, but need to have a valid drivers licence, more of a test to drive as it is totally different my first time I chose taxis, second trip I rented a car. For travellers staying in Deluxe hotels, many offer limousine services.
