There is so much going on in Belgrade when it comes to the transportation. Technology have a huge impact on the old school taxi drivers. They are now not safe as before. Online apps gave apprehend to the users. Its way easier to book trough an app then calling a taxi or risking to sit at the wild taxi. There were a huge protests against new transportation companies. Taxis have blocked the city centar several times and were demanding government to take away licence for the online taxi workers. Since then its still very unclear.
Other transportation options in Belgrade
If you are staying in the downtown you can easily walk around. If you want to move from Down Town to Vracarm Dedinje or New Belgrade you will need a taxi for sure. If you wanna go green and healthy with riding a bicycle then make sure you are fit enough for Belgrade streets. To be honest its not very recommended to drive a bike or a bicycle in our city though. Cars are moving all over the street and cut others out to often. To say it other words its not that safe. If you keep riding in Dorcol area you are good. Driving in New Belgrade also all good. Except using a HeighWay. There is no Metro in Belgrade. Public buss could be an option but not the best for sure.
Overall Choosing a Taxi would be the smartest and easiest way to move around.
Have a nice flight & alot of fun in our Funky city!
