How to get around within Uzbekistan

The main line in Uzbekistan goes through Tashkent, Samarkand, and Bukhara. The route is served by two express trains, Registon and Sharq. The Registon runs from Tashkent to Samarkand, while the Sharq runs from Tashkent to Bukhara, with an intermediate stop in Samarkand. Buses are another form of local transportation, and should be used by tourists who are not in a hurry. Shared taxis, on the other hand, are convenient and quite safe, but usually already have a pre-determined destination. Ask around at ranks so they may point you to the appropriate route that goes through your destination. Regular taxis are often not metered, so negotiate the price with the driver beforehand. If you would rather drive instead, it is possible to rent a car if you're 17 years old and above and own an international driving permit.
