“Metroul” is by far the fastest way to travel around the city, operated by the Metrorex. Is reliable, comfortable and easy to navigate in; the only downside is it does not cover all areas of Bucharest.
It was mainly built during the communist period: 4 lines (and 1 under construction since forever) with 51 stations (all of them with a different design). Speaking about stations, some of them are really interesting are a must for subway fans (Titan, Politehnica or Piata Romana).
The metro trains schedule operate between 5:00-23:00. We don’t have yet a line to connect the city to the airport but, of course, is under planning.
TICKET PURCHASE & PRICES
Tickets have decent prices and are sold in 4 forms: 2 trips – 5 lei, 10 trips – 20 lei, daily ticket (only to be used by one person) – 8 lei, monthly ticket (only to be used by one person) – 70 lei. You can buy them from any station from the cashier or selling machines.
Pending on the lines and hours, metros can circulate at intervals between 2 and 10 minutes.

Beware, the dotted lines are just planned to be constructed, not in use for the moment.
