Taxis in Dar es Salaam can be identified by their white number plates and a green strip down the side. Regular taxis can be expensive and haggling is expected over quoted prices. In Dar es Salaam, Uber, Taxify, Ping and Rova all have apps with drivers ready to take you where you need to go. We would reccomend using Rova Rides .
The local buses know as Dala Dalas are cheap and reach most parts of the city. They can be very busy and the vehicle quality is usually questionable. The DART Rapid Transit bus system is a safer faster bus service with limited connections. DART stops are a 2 minute walk from the hotel.
