Getting to Bucharest
By taxi
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, 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.
For those who want to head into town in a bit more comfort , a good option is TransVision that offers airport transfers in a fleet of smart vehicles. You can visit their website:

By bus
You can also get to town by taking the bus 783, which stops underneath the arrivals hall, in front of the internal arrivals and leaves for the city centre (stopping at Piata Victoriei, Piata Romana and Piata Universitatii) every 30 minutes during the day, and then every 40 minutes through the night.

You need to purchase an Activ Card before boarding (get it from the little booth that you’ll find on your right hand side as you exit). A return journey into the city and back costs 7 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, trams and the metro. These cards cannot be bought on board.
