INFORMAȚII UTILE DESPRE BUCUREȘTI

Transportul în București

În București poți să folosești autobuzul, metroul, tramvaiul, taxi sau serviciile de car sharing. Metroul (Metrorex) este cea mai rapidă metodă de transport în oraș și este de asemenea și foarte accesibilă ca preț. Sistemul de transport terestru (RATB) este foarte bine răspândit și acoperă aproape orice colțișor al orașului dar la orele de vârf poate fi foarte lent. Unele dintre liniile de tramvai circulă mai bine.

Șoferii de taxi din București nu au cea mai bună reputați din cauza unor exemple neplăcute și întâmplări nefericite cu turiști străini. Bineînțeles, nu toți sunt la fel dar îți recomandăm să folosești automatele din aeroport, gară și aplicațiile de mobil ca să faci comandă pentru taxi.

Serviciile de car sharing (UBER, Taxify) sunt foarte populare acum în București iar noi îți recomandăm să le folosești. Dacă încă nu ai un astfel de cont, înregistrează-te aici.
