    Getting around

    Public Transport

    Bucharest has an efficient integrated mass transit system, operated by Regia Autonomă de Transport Bucureşti (RATB; tel: 021 9391; Between 5am and midnight, you can access every quarter of the city via metro trains, buses, trolleybuses and trams. Buy tickets from RATB street kiosks and metro stations, and remember to punch the ticket when you board buses and trolleybuses.


    Unofficial cabs in Bucharest have a poor reputation for overcharging, including those waiting outside the arrivals hall at the airport. Be wary of taxis hanging around outside big hotels and tourist sights; it’s better to call ahead for a cab from a reliable radio-taxi firm. Reputable cab companies include Cobalsescu (tel: 021 9451; and Meridien (tel: 021 9888; A tip of up to 10% is customary.
