Kutaisi-Tbilisi by public transport

Hello,

Soon I will be making a trip to Georgia, arriving on Kutaisi airport. Could anyone advise me what the easiest way is to get from Kutaisi to Tbilisi? I heard taking a marshrutka is the best thing to do, in that case is it possible to wait on a stand and pay for a ticket on the sport or should i buy this up front?

Thanks a lot for informing me.

Hello, I took a bus from Kutaisi to Butami and I think I passed the Kutaisi airport.

Seriously the airport is so freaking far from Kutaisi main centre and I doubt there are buses, from what I see there are some taxis waiting outside the airport ready to extort money off you.

Wiki says its about 15km off Kutaisi but somehow I think its more. Lonely Planet says 30km and I think its more reasonable as the bus journey from Kutaisi centre to airport is about 30km. There is no direct bus to and from the airport but I think you might be able to get the bus drivers to stop for you for those going the Kutaisi - Batumi route and vice versa.

There is a direct train which commences in Makhinjauri (actually Batumi, but the line stops about 10km out) - this train passes through Kutaisi.

You might be able to buy a ticket on-line here http://www.railway.ge/?web=1&lang=eng more information here www.seat61.com/Caucasus.htm#.UhTeEpLVCSo
