FROM HENRY COANDA AIRPORT TO CITY CENTER
To order a taxi, look for the multi-language touch screens in the arrivals hall.
They are fully automated and very easy to use, and you can choose from the full range of Bucharest taxi companies: all have their tariffs clearly displayed.
Once the taxi company of your choice has informed you (via the screen) how long the taxi will take to arrive, and what ID number the taxi has (take the ticket which will be printed), you simply go outside to wait for your taxi. Just make sure you get into the correct taxi: check the company name and ID number with the one on your ticket.
For those who want to head into town in a bit more comfort than your average visitor, a good option is TransVision, who offer airport transfers in a fleet of smart vehicles from as little as 18 € per car. Call (+4) 755 05 26 21 or go to visit their website, www.airport-transfer-bucharest.com.
Express Bus 783 - 24 hour service
Stops underneath the arrivals hall, in front of internal arrivals.
You need to purchase an Activ Card before boarding (get it from the little booth which you’ll find on your right hand side as you exit).
A return journey into the city and back costs 8.60 lei (no singles are available, but there is no time limit on using the return). You also need to pay 3.70 lei for the card, but it can be recharged as often as you like at any ticket kiosk in Bucharest, with as much credit as you like, and used on all Bucharest buses and trams. These cards cannot be bought on board.
This bus that links the airport with Piata Unirii in downtown Bucharest runs day and night (including weekends and other holidays), every 15-20 minutes during the day (6.30 - 21.35) and every 30-40 minutes at night.
