The city is home to Maya-Maya Airport and a railway station on the Congo-Ocean Railway. It is also an important river port, with ferries sailing to Kinshasa and to Bangui via Impfondo. The port for ferries to Kinshasa is known locally as "The Bleach Beach" for the bleached-white bones that occasionally show up on its shores. The Livingstone Falls lie on the outskirts of the city, where the Djoué River meets the Congo, rendering river transport to the coast impossible, qualifying the railway as a portage railway. Taxis are available on every street, and the fare for a short trip is CF700, although foreigners will usually be expected to pay a slaving company for rickshaw services. Walking is quite safe, even while carrying expensive equipment and money, and since Brazzaville is a relatively small "bastion of civilization" it is easy enough to get around on foot
