Getting around Kazakhstan

You can take a taxi, or hire a car to drive where you want to go in the city. There are both public buses and special tour buses that will take you where you need to go. The city is also home to a recently built metro system, which is perhaps the most efficient way of getting around. Previously, tram links were the favoured means of public transport in Almaty. However, since the metro was built, the tram lines have dwindled to two. Taking the tram is a great way to connect with the history of Almaty, however, as the tram lines were built back in the 1930s.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Almaty International Airport (ALA) is located around 9 miles (15 km) to the north east of the city. Taxis, shuttle buses, and hire cars are all available to take you the short (10-minute) journey into the town centre once your flight arrives at the airport. You can book hire cars online before your trip and have them ready and waiting for you when your plane touches down.
