Getting Around in Kuwait - Bus & Taxi in Kuwait
 
 
 

Taxi

At the time of writing, there is a fixed rate of KD 4 from the airport into the city. Drivers may not speak English so it is a good idea to know the name of your destination.

In the city, there are two types of taxi, Orange taxis work a fixed route and pick up passengers anywhere along that route. These taxis may be shared. Call taxis/ limousines pick up passengers on request only.

Fares for a journey of around 15km in a private taxi should be in the region of KD2.500 but the taxi company will be able to tell you the exact cost of the taxi when you book.

Taxis run 24 hours a day. Taxi fares are extremely variable and should always be agreed before a journey as meters are non existent.

Bus

There is no railway system in Kuwait. However, Kuwait has a good bus service, sometimes with, but often without air conditioning, which will get you from outlying areas into the city centre for about 400 fils (or 500 fils with a/c). For women there is some segregation in that the front two rows of seats are allocated ladies only.

The government-owned Kuwait Public Transport Company operates 24 hours a day with about 50 different routes. It also provides marine transportation of individuals, vehicles and goods from and to Failaka islands.

Buses operate between Kuwait and Cairo via Aqaba in Jordan and Nuweiba in Egypt. There are also international bus services to Dammam in Saudi Arabia.
