The municipal bus system is very convenient, traversing from one end of the Promenade to the other. Davos is only around 3 or 4 Km long and about 1 Km wide, so it is easy to get anywhere by bus and a short walk. Cabs are also available, but run about 12-15 CHF during the day and double that at night.'
