Getting Around Sochi

There isn’t one solution to getting around Sochi and over the course of your stay you’ll probably find yourself using a mix of Sochi public transportation, cars, taxis, and your own two feet. Renting a car or hailing a taxi is often the most convenient option and it gives you the freedom to set your own schedule and explore areas surrounding the city. If you choose to use a taxi, allow your hotel to arrange it for you to prevent confusion with your driver who, most likely, does not speak English. However, a car is by no means your only option. Currently Sochi Public Transportation consists of a comprehensive system of trolleybuses and smaller mini buses, known as ‘marshrutki’, that operate throughout the city. By 2014, in time for the Olympics, Sochi Public Transportation will feature the Sochi Light Metro and English speaking bus and train operators. For those who wish to go their own way, Central Sochi can easily be walked and the city has recently introduced a free bicycle rental service. You can pick up and drop off a bicycle at any one of 30 locations for only a deposit.
