This is an express bus line, operated by RATB (public service) that runs between Henri Coanda Airport and Gara de Nord Train Station (Bucharest North Train Station). This bus line runs everyday from  05.15 to 23.10.

Tickets

The tickets are, in fact, magnetic cards. Tourists mostly use the blue card named Multiplu. A card for 2 trips costs 7 lei + the cost of the card 1.6 lei.

You can't buy a card with only 1 trip, the cards are issued with minimum 2 trips and maximum 10 trips. This type of card is not rechargeable and you can use the trips together with your friends or family.

There is another type of card called Active but that one is mostly used by residents, because it can be recharged with several types of tickets.

When you travel from Henri Coanda Airport to Bucharest North train station you can buy this card from the automatic vending machine or the ticket booth located exactly in the bus stop.

The bus stop is downstairs, on the lower floor, near the entrance to Domestic Arrivals (from International Arrivals, go downstairs and follow the signs to get to Domestic Arrivals and then exit the building).

When you travel from Bucharest North Train Station to the airport, there is a ticket booth exactly in front of the main entrance in the train station (see the pictures). After you have purchased the tickets, cross the street and near the crosswalk, on the right, there is the bus stop for the 780 Express Bus. Map

Note: You must buy the card before you get on the bus because you can't buy the tickets from the driver. If you are already in Bucharest, note that some of the bus stops along the route may not have ticket booths, so better buy this card in advance.

To validate your trip after you get in the vehicle, look for a small orange box with a blue LCD screen on it.  Touch the indicated area on the orange box with your card and you will hear a short beep indicating your trip was validated. A long beep means there was an error and you need to try again.

If you forget to validate your trip, you can be fined with 50 lei (approx. 11 euros)
