Travel links

Bucharest transportation:

Tickets: one 2-trip metro card is 4 lei ( 2 lei/trip). One 10-trip metro card is 15 lei (1,5 lei/trip).

One bus trip is 1.3 lei; the airport Express Bus is 8.6 lei/2 trips – you can’t get just one trip, the minimum is 2.

There are day passes for both metro and buses but we do not advise it, since you will not need to take many buses+metros in Bucharest per day. If you just get the single tickets it will be cheaper, since you will not travel much and far during just one day; many things you want to see are within walking distance, too.

Combined metro+bus tickets: 30 lei for 10 trips: once you validate one of these trips, you can use metro or bus within one hour ( the 1 validation is good for 60 minutes only; and you have 10 of these)

Day pass for metro+bus= 16 lei
