Bus & Tram
Local buses don’t exist in Phnom Penh. Most Cambodians use motos or cyclos to get around the city. With the long, straight boulevards crisscrossing the city, it would be perfect for trams or trolley buses, but developments like these are still some years away.
Global taxi, Tranchoic taxi and Taxi Association offer on-call 24/7 taxi service. Both are generally available only on-call, although the new Global taxis sometimes wait in tourist areas, especially late at night. More common are unmarked, unmetered taxis, usually Camrys, which can be arranged through your hotel or travel agent. They can also be found waiting outside major hotels. Taxi/car with a driver costs $25-$35/day. Short jaunts around town run a minimum of $4-$5
Motorcycle Taxi (Motodup)
The omnipresent ‘moto’ is the most common and fastest form of public transportation. Motos can be found virtually everywhere in town, just step to the curb and they will find you. Motos cost from 1500R-4000R for a trip in town and $6-$8 per day.
There is a limited freight service running from Kampot to Phnom Penh on the Southern Line

Tuk tuks consist of a motorcycle with a cabin for the passengers hitched to the back. They are cheap (Per tuk-tuk: US$1-3 for a trip in the city, $7 to the airport) and plentiful. Negotiate the price ahead of time and make sure the driver knows how to get to your destination
The humble bicycle rickshaw known locally as the "cyclo" can be a romantic, even practical form of transportation, especially if time is not a factor
