Sofia public transport system works very well if you are well armed with patience.
The price for one way ticket is 1.60 lv and there’s several ways to get it. You can buy it from kiosks usually located at or near the stops and pinch the ticket inside the bus, trolleybus or tram. You can get it from the driver, but make sure you have the right amount of money. In trams and trolleybuses you can find a ticket machine inside, accepting coins. Once again, make sure you have the right amount of money, as the greedy machine doesn’t give change back.
The subway system (the metro) is newly constructed and it’s very foreigners friendly. The price per ticket is once again 1.60 lv and you can buy it from the ticket machines in the subway or from the designated desks. From the airport you can get a direct metro to the city center and the railway station.
Currently in Sofia you can also rent an electric car for the amount of 25 – 28 EUR per day with Spark.
