Bahrain Bus Prices

Since Bahrain is a very small country, public transport is not very developed. There is no rail system.  This is the same for airport transportation. The easiest way to get to the city center from the airport is by taxi or private car.  You can easily rent your car from the car rental companies that have branches in the airport. Or you can easily reach the city center with taxis outside the airport. For public transportation, you can use buses that are not preferred by the locals.

Bahrain Airport Taxis


There are two options for those who want to use a taxi.

1- Orange taxis are used for personal transportation. We strongly recommend that you turn on a taximeter and check the fare schedule in the taxi. Price can be inflated against foreigners.

2- Yellow taxis work with the logic of taxi-bus. More than one person can ride. The price is partly cheaper than the regular taxi.

There are also many pirate taxis in Bahrain. In these taxis, the price varies completely depending on the agreement. Although there is not much trouble with security, it is still not recommended.

Bahrain Airport Rent a Car


Since the citizens of Bahrain are generally fond of luxury, they all use their own vehicles.

Again, short-term arrivals from neighboring countries either come by road with their own vehicles or rent a car in the country and make their travels in that way.

Car hire with and without driver is very common. If your budget allows, we recommend renting a car.

There are many car rental companies in Bahrain Airport. You can rent your car from companies like Hertz, Europcar, Budget, Sixt.
