The most convenient way to get around is to take the subway as its cheap, convenient and safe. I mostly used the day pases that were 7/8 $.
The service is not that frequent as other metros on weekends but its alright.
However there are place where there is no Metro/Subway and you best choice is Walk to come to this city with sneakers and its easy to get around. I found it to be safe and easy to walk around.
