How different airport transfers compares by distance and price across the world's major cities.

What's the best way to get from the airport to the city? It all depends.

In Sydney you'll spend about four times as long on the bus as anything else. In London you'll get there faster by train than you would in a taxi, while new arrivals in Los Angeles will save time by bus and waste it on a train.

Dubai will see you on the bus for an hour only to travel less than 5km, while Bangkok's trains, taxis and Ubers can all make the 30km+ journey in half that.

Barcelona has expensive taxis and no Ubers, but they don't hold a candle to the pricey New York Ubers, which are considerably more expensive than its taxis. And when in Rome, do as the Romans do - take the train.
