There are two types of minibuses, the Green and the Red. The Green minibuses are more organised, and they are operated by big companies and run on fixed routes. The red minibuses are mostly operated by individuals and can pick their own routes.

Passengers are required to pay when boarding the Green minibuses, while they are required to pay when leaving the Red minibuses.

The minibuses are famous for their speed and frequency, therefore you can save lots of time when travelling on minibuses!
