I'm local. Taxi is really waste of money. Bus is OK. Price for bus is 
1.40 Litas or less than 50 euro cents. I don't know but there is another 
choice: there are micro buses that costs 3 Litas (less than one 1 euro). 
It is faster and more comfortable than bus. I believe numbers 15 and 100 
will take you almost to EuroPython hotel. I will take some photos and 
will draw something on map to illustrate everything later next week.

Fines are still very low compared to other countries. It is 
approximately 6 euros. That might be cheaper than taxi :-) And I believe 
nobody will waste their time for fining foreigner because there is 
little chance that they will speak english. From other side experience 
might be not the pleasant one.
