Getting to town If you rent a car at the airport, the route is well signposted until you enter the city, after that signage is more rare. Follow by signs Rustaveli Av. or Freedom square if you want to reach the centre. If you get lost, ask a taxi driver if you can pay to follow him to your destination. Taxis are relatively cheap and it will be the quickest and least stressful option.
The cheapest way to get to the city centre is to take bus # 37 to Freedom square and Rustaveli Av. and back to the airport. The journey takes about 30 - 40 minutes.

You can change notes into coins at the tourist information located in arrival hall. These buses operate from 07:00 until 22:00, which is not very helpful if you flight is one of the many that land during the night.
A new train station is located only two minutes walk from the terminal.

A taxi ride to the city centre shouldn’t be more than 20 - 25 Lari.
