Niš has public transportation, but almost all the venues (the Faculty, majority of recommended hotels and accommodations, restaurants, etc.) can easily be reached by foot (they are within walking distance).
There are many taxi companies in Niš, and it is recommended to call them and request a ride rather than to stop them on the street, because there are also unlicensed taxies that drive without the taximeter. The average price of a taxi ride during the day is usually 2 to 5 € (for distances between 2 and 8 km).
