Panama City's mostly underground transportation system is known as El Metro with four lines that operate throughout Panama. Visit the website for details on fares and station stops. 


Taxis are plentiful, though please note that addresses are not commonly used in Panama so ensure your driver knows your destination prior to departure. Before even getting into a taxi, state your destination and settle on a fare. Panamanian taxis don't have meters, but there are standard fares between Panama City's neighborhoods. Be sure to negotiate beforehand. A taxi ride from Tocumen International Airport to Panama is approximately $30. 


Consider using Uber as your main mode of transportation. The app is available on all major app stores and provides reliable and economical transportation.
