Getting Around Belgrade

Public Transportation

Belgrade does not have an underground railway system and it does not look as if it is going to get one soon (although it has one of the deepest tube stations in Europe, at 42m below ground level), but still it's public transport network cover almost all areas. City transport comprises buses, trams and trolleybuses.

There are several types of tickets (image to the right):

All tickets (except those bought from the driver) must be validated on machines inside the vehicle (image to the right). Every time you validate your ticket, the amount of 60 RSD will be subtracted from the total amount on your ticket (maximum amount on paper ticket is 600 RSD; while plastic ticket doesn't have upper limit)

Public transport runs from 04:00 to 00:00. During night time, buses run at 1-hour intervals. Night buses depart from special stops at the Republic Square towards other parts of the city. The night fare is 120 RSD, available on board (you can't use your daily ticket for the night rides, tickets must be bought on board). You are advised to avoid trams if you are in a hurry.

Transport authorities routinely check tickets for validation especially at peak hours on major lines and an infraction can leave you without €30.
