Although Belgrade has about 2 million citizens and a problem with traffic it does not have an underground railway system but there are plans in the near future.
Transportation by bus, trolleybus and tram
Belgrade public transport is generally efficient. In the center of Town, a bus may be faster than a car, because most streets have bus-only lanes.
Frequency of bus, trolleybus and tram depends on the route and time of the day. Waiting time ranges from 3 to 30 minutes (less frequently during public holidays or weekends). On every stop, at least in the city center, there is a board with information on city transport lines.
With the new Bus Plus public transportation system some changes were made. Setting up a passenger information display system started in 2012. The new BusPlus display system provides real-time passenger information about the vehicle distance from the current bus stop. The principle is the same as for BusPlus message system and includes how many stops is between you and your desired public transportation vehicle (bus, trolleybus and tram). Starting July 15th, new rules when entering the bus and regarding the control are coming into force.
It’s one ticket per journey, regardless of length, and they can be used on all city public transport. Smoking is strictly forbidden in all forms of public transport in Serbia. Machines installed in all vehicles for the ticket validation are also announcing the current stop and the next one so you could more easily use the Belgrade public transportation.

Transportation by express minibus
Minibuses which criss-cross Belgrade are quicker than regular city buses, all air- conditioned, smaller and very comfortable. Minibus transport is working on weekdays from 6am to 10pm, except on Sundays and during public holidays. You can only buy tickets inside a minibus and they are little more expensive (120 dinars).
