Getting Around

Monte-Carlo has an efficient public transport system, with many bus lines. The Monaco Bus app will tell visitors everything they need to know about the buses, from what time they take off to where they go. The Mobee app is similar to Uber and the PBSC app allows visitors to rent bikes. CityMapper is an all-purpose transportation app that gives travellers all the information they need, such as the estimated time their bus will arrive at their station and how much their taxi fare will probably be from point A to point B. Perhaps the best way to explore the city, however, is on foot. To this end, Monte-Carlo also has a series of elevators that transport visitors and residents up and down the steep streets of the city.
