Minibus

Travel as the locals do! If your load is light, you can travel at a fraction of the price of a taxi by taking a “marshrutka” (shared-ride minibus), which travels along fixed routes. Before hopping in, check with the driver to ensure they are heading to (or from) the airport.

Taxis

Metered taxis are readily available for hire in the ground transportation area. At the time of this update, the one-way fare between the airport and Yerevan city center is AMD 4.500.

Pro-Tip: A reader tells us, ” If you are travelling to Armenia, the taxi application, “GG” is a must-have tool throughout your stay. Using a GG taxi from the airport to the main square will cost approx. 1500-2000AMD(3-4$). They are very honest and polite and usually know at least Russian and/or English. The alternatives are the “Yandex” taxi – check the price rate before ordering and the U-taxi – which usually requires tips for rush hours
