Beirut is well serviced by its network of buses. The Lebanese Commuting Company (LCC) operate, hail and ride buses from early morning to evening in frequent intervals of 15 minutes. Taxis ply at prior negotiated fares or as shared taxis (Servees) which will not drop you to your exact destination. The safest and most trustworthy option is to reserve a taxi from one of the official taxi companies, though these will cost more. Exploring the city is also quite viable given Beirut's compact nature.
