3. Public transport

You can use bus, tram or trolleybus (see the map of network public transport in Timisoara). The tickets can be bought from any kiosk (the price per trip is about 0.5 euro).


4. Taxi

We recommend you Tudo Taxi, Fan Taxi, Radio Taxi or Pro Taxi (see the name of company on the car)! These companies have fair prices (about 0.4 euro per kilometre). Attention! Under no circumstances, should you use the private taxi, which have only the word “TAXI” written (they are authorized, but are very expensive – you can see these kind of taxi especially at the Airport and Train Station).
