Getting Around in Brasov

Hi

We are due to stay at Pension Memo, Strada Lungă 159, Brașov 500051, Romania

and would like to use the train for some outings. What would be the best way to get to the main train station, as it looks quite a long way from the hotel. Is there a direct bus, and what about taxis, baring in mind the language barrier? Thanks

You can take bus 5 or 28 for two-three stops towards downtown, get to the Livada Postei bus terminal and from there take bus 4 till the other end of the line, which is at the train station.

As for taxis, check the price per km before getting in (it must be under 2 lei/km) and make sure they use the meter. The ride to the train station should cost about 5-6 lei (~£1).

I also notice there is a railway station just up the road, is it useable?

Tickets are sold at kiosks or newspaper stands in some bus stops.

You could get a one way ticket ("bilet o calatorie"; it costs 2 lei/£0.4), a two way ticket ("bilet doua calatorii"; it's 4 lei/£0.8) but my suggestion would be to get a day pass for all lines ("abonament o zi"; costs 6 lei/£1.2).

The train station up the road (Bartolomeu) is in use, although just Regio/commuter trains stop there. They're heading to or coming from Fagaras/Sibiu.
