Getting around the city
Public transportation (by bus/trolley/tram):
Regular fare is 3 LEI/person/trip. We use electronic card system, upon purchase there is a small fee for the card itself. Not all stops have a ticket booth. For every person in your group, you must validate by pressing button 2 on the machines in the bus. Most of the vehicles also have implemented new validators that allow debit cards as payment. There is also the 24pay free app you can use on your phone, where you can buy 90 minutes tickets or 24/72 hours travel passes, valid for all surface transport routes from the moment of payment.
Please allow plenty of time for this option, as there is not so strict schedule. More information on STB website (the Transportation Society of Bucharest).
This is the fastest way to get around. For Grade Exams the stop is “Gara de Nord” station. For the feis venue the stop is “Petrache Poenaru” station. Trip cards available for purchase at each subway station: click to see prices. We would recommend the 10 trips card, especially for groups. The validators at every station also allow debit cards as payment. More information on Metrorex website.
