This is where you feel the pulse of the city, Georgians living their daily lives. Easy to use, friendly metro staff who are ready to help if one asks how to get to a particular place. Nice trains and a good ride too.

The metro is a legacy of soviet planning with the first part opening in 1966. The rolling stock has been refurbished but remains noisy to passengers riding. To travel you have to purchase a MetroMoney Card (for 2 Lari) and then top up what you wish on it. Each single trip costs 50 tetri and is valid for a metro/bus... More

Very nice Metro and very easy too. I used it many times and it helped me a lot. you can buy a card costs 2 Lari and charge it and each trip costs 0.50 Lari. So, it was very cheap.

My first reaction to the metros was how deep underground these metros were built. But it is a very cheap mode of transportation within Tbilisi. If you want to take a marshrutka to travel to any town from Tblisi, you may have to take the Metro station. From 2 different metro stops the marshrutka leaves for diffrent places in Georgia....

Interesting experience. Old style subway system. The announcement is also in English. Inexpensive. Deep under the ground.

Get the card for 2 lari and load up whenever it is low. Fairs are low and the routes will cover the downtown and most of the suburbs. Tap and go is good even at rush hour.

The first time you go into the Metro I suspect you will have a moment of panic. These stations go very deep. I suspect they were intended to survive nuclear attack. The descent is steep and the escalators very fast. When you look down it can be a bit scary. But once you get used to it it is quite... More

It was quiet scary how deep you go to ride a train. We took the Rustavelli metro station and we go long way down like to a mining pit. The train despite its age is safe to use and clean.We stop to Dadube station to continue our journey to Kazbegi. The fare is cheap of .50 GEL and you can... More

We used the Metro quite a lot on our time in Tbilisi. It only has two lines and is very cheap. The Stations are quite far apart and the trains travel a quite a high speed. You need a Smartcard to load with money, but the card is very cheap at 2 Lari and you can buy it at the... More

While not particularly extensive, the Tbilisi Metro is nonetheless quite useful. The signage is non-standard but very easy to understand and in some ways better than what you typically see in Metro systems. The cars are aging and severe--perhaps the Soviet era originals--but nonetheless highly serviceable.
