Get around[edit]

By car[edit]

On foot[edit]

Though the city is fairly spread out, Adenta is relatively safe to walk around during the day (and night, in many areas). Watch out for open sewers, automobiles, (even in the city) when walking the streets.

By taxi[edit]

To flag a taxi wave your arm with your finger pointed down to the ground. On a busy street you will have many taxis driving past trying to offer you their service by honking at you. There are very few Ghanaian cabs with meters. You must negotiate how much you are willing to pay before you start the trip.

Metered taxi[edit]

There are some taxis with meters in them. These are generally more expensive, but you can be a little more sure about how much they will cost and it is more secure. It is cheaper when you are three or four as you can share the cost among yourselves.

Ride hailing[edit]

  3. Bolt which is very popular.

By TroTro[edit]

TroTros are usually very crowded and dilapidated minivans ad minibuses that act as the city's public transit system. TroTros travel along a well known routes in the city, and stop at various points along the way (some stops have signs, others don't). As a TroTro approaches a stop, a "mate" (the driver's assistant) will usually yell out the side of the window where the TroTro is going. Many people die in TroTro accidents every year, however typically those that die in trotro accidents die on highways in rural areas. Accidents causing death in Accra are relatively rare, in part due to traffic congestion.
