Although Belgrade has about 2 million citizens and a problem with traffic it does not have an underground railway system nor will it get one in 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.
Smoking is strictly forbidden in all forms of public transport in Serbia.
Frequency of bus, trolleybus and tram depends on the route and time of the day. Waiting time ranges from 3 to 15 minutes (less frequently during public holidays or weekends).
On every stop there is a board with information on city transport lines.
It’s one ticket per journey, regardless of length, and they can be used on all city public transport owned by GSP Beograd.
- You are advised to avoid trams if you are in a hurry
- If there is traffic jam, trams can be better choice
- Watch out for muggers
- It is recommended that you keep your ticket till the end of the journey.
For assortment of tickets see article Public transport tickets.
Transportation by express minibus
Minibuses which criss-cross Belgrade are quicker than regular city buses, all air- conditioned, smaller and very comfortable. You can only buy tickets inside a minibus and they are more expensive (120 dinars, for now)
