Bucharest Metro Prices Rise

Ticket prices for the Bucharest metro system are set to rise from 4 August 2012. The metro system, run by Metrorex, currently consists of four lines running across Bucharest in nearly every direction. It's the most popular way to get around town for locals - roughly 700 000 journeys are made on a daily basis.

Single journey cards and day passes will remain at the same price, but multiple-trip, weekly, and monthly passes will go up. For example, weekly passes will rise in price from 15 RON to 20 RON. A monthly pass will not cost 60 RON, up from 50 RON.

The fifth metro line, the M5 Line, is currently under construction and is set for completion in 2018.
