Getting to the Venue from Train Stations

If possible, have this paper printed
In order to ease the process of getting from the train stations by taxi, fixed prices were determined in advance by Wikimania local team in cooperation with the stations managers. The prices are for all the different destinations attendees should get to in all hours of the day. It is highly recommended to have the paper telling everything about it printed and to show it to the taxi driver upon entering the cab.
  • The prices are for a joint ride of up to 4 people including the entire luggage.
  • When less than 4 people enter the cab, the price for the ride remains the same.
