0. Wherever you
come from, and however you come, the easiest and fastest way to
get to 'Politehnica' is by cab. However, it is the most expensive
too. A trip from 'Otopeni' Airport to 'Politehnica' University "should"
cost between 150.000 and 250.000 lei ( 1 USD = aprox. 29000 lei ).
It's probably a good idea to negociate the price
upfront, before getting in the car.
Probably more up-to-date currency info here.
The other ways to get here are...
1. From the "Otopeni"
Airport to the Civic Center and then UPB
You should get on the 783 bus from
the airport, which will take you to 'Piata
Romana', that is 'Romana Square'.
From there you get the subway towards 'Unirii'
station, where you have to change the line, towards 'Gara
de Nord'. Get off the train in 'Eroilor'
station, and take the train towards 'Industriilor'.
First stop is 'Politehnica'.
2. From "Gara de Nord" railway
station to UPB
a. You can take trams numbers 35
and 37, or trolleys numbers 62
and 71 or buses numbers 105
and 305. Probably the best way to decide
where to get off is to look for a person aged 17-24 in the bus/tram/trolley
you're in and ask them in english where is 'Politehnica'. Chances
are 75% to get an acceptable answer.
b. You can take the subway from 'Gara
de Nord' towards 'Pantelimon',
and get off at 'Semanatoarea' station.
This means you'll enter 'POLI' campus from "below" / from
the river / from the north as displayed on the map.
Getting to the
red point that indicates "Facultatea
de Automatica si Calculatoare" shouldn't be a problem, once
you get off at the right trolley/bus/tram/subway stop.
Enjoy your stay.
