Public Transportation

 

Timișoara is the modern and developed city, so it has its own system of public transport. Regia Autonomă de Transport Timişoara, or just R.A.T.T., is a municipal transport that will get you where you want. Means of transportation run between 5:30 and 23:30.

 

The system is easy to understand, it has nearly 35 routes, which are connecting the different parts of the city. You will be able to get almost everywhere you want by tram, bus or trolleybus.

 

Routes are numbered as follows: Tram routes are numbered from 1 to 10, trolleybus routes are 11 to 20 and bus routes are 20 to 44. Besides that there are special bus routes, called Express, which are recognizable by the letter ‘’E’’. These busses are faster, and the tickets are a little bit more expensive.

 

Payment

The traditional system is to purchase a ticket at the kiosk (which displays the RATT logo). A single ticket allows you, after validating it with the ticket-stamping machine upon boarding, to travel as far as you want. Note that it is only a one-way means of transportation. A more modern approach is a micro-chip card, more information can be found here: http://www.ratt.ro/eng/taxare/
