Taxis are the most convenient and fastest way to get from one place to another in Belarus. Numerous taxi carriers offer their services 24/7 and can be extremely helpful, especially in the evening and night hours when public transport is not working.
Despite the fact that taxis are available in Belarus, this is not the preferable means of transportation among Belarusians. Belarusians are trying to follow a savings approach. For the majority of the population going by taxi on a regular basis is tantamount to the loss of all wages, so taxis remain the preferred option only when there is an urgent need.
Passenger transportation by minivan is a popular service, as there are situations when the capabilities of a private car are not enough. A minivan is usually ordered if you need to transport a group of 5-9 people. A minivan is the most economical for moving around Minsk, when a large company, with or without luggage, makes the trip.

Intercity taxis go from Minsk to Warsaw, Bryansk, Moscow, Vilnius, Kiev and others. The cost will depend on the type of car and the number of kilometers.
In order to order a Uber machine you need to install the application on your phone from the App Store or Google Play.
