  • Taxis

Taxis are available 24 hours a day at Abidjan International Airport. They are recognizable by their reddish-orange color. They have a taximeter but they are seldom used. The rides are always negotiated with the driver before entering the vehicle. Recently the city has wanted to enforce the use of meters in taxis as some visitors were being charged far above the normal rate. It is said that officers will be stationed to help arriving passengers get a correct price. However, Abidjan is a very large city, and the price and the ride time (15 to 40 minutes) depends on the distance to the destination area and on congestion of the streets. Expect to pay a minimum 4,000 CFA. It is also highly recommended to use the services of a private car company to pick you up to avoid these issues.

Please see our Taxis Information Page for more details including pre-arranged private taxi transfers.

  • Shuttle Bus

The SOTRA line “MonBus 6” joins the South Plateau station with the airport at the cost of 200 FCFA about (€ 0.30 or US $ 0.35). There are some hotels which operate shuttles between the airport, the specific hotels, the city center and tourist areas.
