The network is arguably frequent and fairly comfortable, reliable and easy-to-use. Surprisingly for some, it is by far the safest way to travel through the city.
Buses, trolleybuses and trams
Bucharest has a very complex network of buses, trams and trolleybuses which is, at first glance, fairly confusing to the tourist. Once you know your way around the network, however, public surface transport can be a very good way of getting around since there is a bus, tram or trolleybus stop virtually everywhere in this city.
The vehicles are usually very frequent, although they can also get terribly crowded at peak hours. The ticketing system uses contact-less smart-cards, called Activ cards and paper tickets valid for one ride on one route.
Be warned that you cannot buy tickets/cards in the vehicles and if caught by an inspector (controlor) you could be fined with 50 lei.
