It is well known that the Romanian capital is among the world’s cities with the most congested traffic. So what other choices are there for those days when driving doesn’t seem to be an option or for those moments when you just don’t feel like driving? How can you get around Bucharest when you are in the city for just a few days? We’ve made a list of options, which includes buses and trams, the subway, taxis, and ride sharing services such as Uber and Taxify, as well as all you need to know about them. Public transport – buses, trams, trolleybuses

RATB is the company running the network of buses, trams and trolleybuses in Bucharest. In addition to the bus and tram lines linking different parts of Bucharest, there are also express bus lines to the Otopeni Airport, as well as several night lines. Moreover, the Bucharest City Tour line operates in the summer, being the perfect choice for tourists visiting the capital, while the recently launched Museums’ Line connects the main museums in Bucharest.

A trip by bus, tram or trolleybus costs RON 1.3 (some 28 euro cents) while a trip by the express bus has the price of RON 3.5 (EUR 0.75).

Taxi - There are several taxi companies in Bucharest, such as Meridian, Speed Taxi, Cristaxi, Taxi 2000, Cobalcescu and Pelicanul. Their tariffs start at around RON 1.39 per km but can go up to RON 3.5 per km, and the prices are usually written on the cars’ doors. The numbers for calling a cab can be found on the cars, as well as on the taxi companies’ websites, with some of them even having mobile apps. For those landing at the airport, it is recommended to take one of the taxis from the dedicated area in front of Arrivals, or order a taxi with the help of the touch screens in the airport.

Ride-sharing: Uber, Taxify - There are two companies offering ride-sharing services in Bucharest, namely Uber and Taxify. Both are cheaper than the taxis, but their activity may be affected by the City Hall’s new regulation, which stipulates that only authorized carriers with dispatch services authorized by the municipality will be able to carry out taxi transport activities in the Romanian capital.


Romanian Franchise Association is pleased to offer exhibitors and attendees substantial hotel and travel savings. Special arrangements have been made with a few of the finest hotels in Bucharest at prices below regular rates.
