Taking the bus is quite convenient and also the cheapest option to reach Kep from Phnom Penh. We recommend travelling with Cambodia Post or Giant Ibis, but there are other companies you can choose from.
An alternative option is to hail a taxi on the street or order a larger SUV type taxi online. Expect the journey to take 3-4 hours, depending on how many stops you make along the way.

You can either put your negotiation skills to work and hail a cab on your own or book a taxi online.
If you hail one on the street, expect to pay around $40-$50 for a one-way trip. Make sure you agree on the rate with the driver so you don’t end up paying more.
Booking online through Camboticket is also a convenient option. Taxis booked online are SUV types and will provide more room than the usual taxis you can find on the streets. Booking online starts at $60 for a 4 person car.
Lastly, you can also opt for rideshare. You can find a rideshare stand at Psar Dang Kor Taxi Park along Mao Tse Toung Boulevard. A ride will cost $5 per person, but you’ll have to wait until the taxi is full.
