Serbia Transport Guide

Serbian public transport combines a scattered mix of local companies with bus services far superior to trains. Being landlocked has its advantages as border hopping between Serbia, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, Romania and Bulgaria has never been easier.

How to get around Serbia

Although the inner-city trains around Belgrade are reasonably comfortable, local or city travel should be restricted to buses and taxis as the trains never run on time, ask any Serbian. Tickets are easy to purchase from a bus terminal booth. If you buy your tickets onboard, verify the price and direction first and ask for a return ticket. Although you’ll have to catch the same bus company again, the price is 20 percent less. Can’t be bothered to wait for a bus? Taxis are widely available in city areas, although it is recommended to ask the driver to quote you a fare first.
