TAXI

A part of the right-hand lane on Bajkalská Street from the National Football Stadium to the Kalinčiakova Elementary School will be reserved for coaches (boarding and disembarking of fans) as well as for TAXI that will drive fans to matches.

If necessary, you can also use a taxi. It is cheaper to order a taxi by phone than catch one at the station or stop it on the street. The minimum driving fee is around 5 EUR. We advise you to check the price before boarding the vehicle. Every taxi vehicle must have a visible price list in place and use a taximeter.

We advise you to use a taxi with this sticker:

You can try ordering a taxi via the HOPIN app or the Bolt app that you can download to your mobile phone via:
