Sofia Metro Line 1 connects Sofia Airport to the city centre, since 2 April 2015, Line 1 has been servicing the Sofia Airport.The Metro travels from Sofia Airport to the city centre in approximately 18 min half it cost by bus or taxi.Ticket machines for metro tickets are located at Sofia Airport Metro Station and further in each metro station:
The metro trains operate from 5am to midnight
Single ride ticket price is 1.60 levs (0.82 EUR). The ticket is valid for the entire metro network so you can use the same ticket until you leave a station

Unfortunately, this review will be quite negative...
I am a Bulgarian who lives abroad. We had visited Bulgaria with friends from Scotland and England from 31.05.2022 until 14.06.2022
We had a pretty bad experience on June 14, 2022
We arrived in Sofia airport at Terminal 1 by bus from Veliko Tarnovo.
The information we had was that a bus would come to take us to Terminal 2 safely, quickly.
Came a bus very small in very poor condition and could accommodate only about twenty people with large suitcases that everyone has something normal when we travel from country to country.
The bus filled up in 10 minutes and we were just crowded like cockroaches inside.
Even about a dozen people stayed outside because there was no other place.
I must note that there was no open window and no air-condition. We were going to suffocate...
The icing on the cake was that we had to wait 15 minutes crammed into the bus because the bus could not leave earlier than the schedule.
We all started arguing with each other inside.
Imagine the bus was filled with people of many nationalities.
The first opinion when someone arrives in Bulgaria builds it when he arrives at the airport in Sofia and the last opinion from Bulgaria gets it when he returns to his country from Sofia airport.
This ugly and unpleasant experience that happened in this little bus just before I left Bulgaria is unacceptable and "ridiculous"
This is a perfect example of why some people visiting Bulgaria never want to come back again.
Otherwise, we need foreign tourists to keep their money in Bulgaria.
Even sharing about what happened would stop many other people who would like to visit this country
I really hope some of the airport bosses read this negative review and change this madness and inhospitability
I do not believe this is happening for the first time and it will certainly happen in the future very soon if not every day...
the facts show that someone is not doing their job for which they are paid.
I was really ashamed to be a Bulgarian in this bad situation.

Basically i try not to waste energy on something i can't change but i am writing this review because i believe something can change in good way.

Please everyone who reads this bad review and can do something to act quickly and rigorously!

Thank you for your attention

We paid 12 Lv to get a private taxi to the city. If we had know the below we would have saved a bit.

There is a very efficient and cost effective way to travel from the airport to the city centre.

The metro will cost 1 Lv 60 (1’60Lv). The station is located at Terminal 2.

If you arrive by budget airline e it is likely to be Terminal 1. From Terminal 1 there is a free shuttle bus to Terminal 2. (Recognised as it has the T1 and T2 sign).

At Terminal 2 the underground is located opposite the arrivals door with a blue M sign.

The train will take you to the city centre. The stations which are central are:

1. Serdika
2. Sofia U

Travel time about 20 mins. Stations are shown in Bulgarian but translated to English alphabet too for ease of navigation.

The city is small and easy to work out routes and walk around.

Transfer from Sofia Airport to downtown is an easy business. But! It may prove costly if you are not careful enough. A ride for €0.80 can get you to the centre via the Metro. Follow the floor lines at Arrivals of Terminal 2 - they'll take you to the metro station (there is an outside-of-the-building section of about 20 m - don't worry.) BE CAREFUL, any ride on the metro can be paid in Bulgarian levs only and that's cash. The length of the journey is about 20 min to Sofia University.
Another option would be a taxi - disregard any verbal taxi offering. Instead go to the right at Arrivals and you will see a taxi stand. Negotiate the price. Airport-Downtown must be around 10 levs (€5.00), or about 0.80-0.90 levs per km - price is labelled on dashboard. You could take a bus but I do not recommend as level of English (or any other foreign language) is brutally non-non-existent. If you arrive at Terminal 1, you can get a taxi but no metro.

As you exit arrivals turn left and go to the end of the arrivals hall and the metro station is a short walk out of the building

The ticket dispenser machine is also available in English. The system is easy to use and a quick journey into central Sofia. Highly recommended

We arrived in sofia just after midnight & on exiting the arrivals area onto the concourse we were immediately approached by 2 individuals one whispering "taxi" from the corner of his mouth while the other smelt of alcohol. We declined and went to the taxi desk. Just offer her the address of your hotel & she will radio one through, she gave us a printout of taxi registration & on departure from the terminal the taxi was waiting. It is approximately 9.3 kilometres away & cost 20 lev, about £8. We booked one from the hotel on our return & were given the car number which is displayed on the car bonnet. As long as you book at the office/hotel etc you will be fine.

We got to the airport only for 13 Lv from far away. Terminal 2 is much moderate than Terminal 1 but still, nice airport.

I tried online booking form, email, phone and WhatsApp over 2 days. No response whatsoever. Obviously, I have no confidence they'd pick me up or be in reach when I need them. Very disappointed given reviews.

It is through the internet that I found this taxi company. When requesting an airport transfer in Sofia I got an immediate reply by Antonia. In the end I booked 4 transfers in all: Two airport transfers and a transfer to Plovdiv and one back from Koprivshtitsa.

At Sofia airport a friendly young man awaited me, who spoke excellent English. Ivan was on top a safe driver in a good, clean car. I requested and got him also for all the other trips and we always had some interesting conversations and besides his good driving I appreciated his general knowledge, humor and intelligence.
