Say It The Habano Way 4

When you want to go downtown, all you do is whistle at the mid-afternoon traffic and a CHEBI (tseh-bi) will come to fetch you. Do note that it is the official state taxi. They are the safest and fastest ways to travel through Havana. The official taxis are modern comfortable cars with air conditioning. They are usually located in front of the state hotels or official buildings. The taxi companies are Transur, Panatax, Habanatax, and OK-Tax. They all have counters and charge 0.6 – 1 CUC/ kilometer.
