Get your bus on time. But don’t waste your life time by waiting for!
Bus line 783 connects the city center of Bucharest with the international airport Henri Coanda. Departure is scheduled in a frequency of 40 minutes. Being a traveller you choose one of several bus stops – and you wait without knowing when exactly the next bus will come. Maybe one bus just left. Who has an idea about traffic in Romania knows that schedules of public transport cannot be matched. And: where exactly is the most suitable bus stop for me to enter line 783?
About 3,7 mio. tourists visit Budapest per year. Sightseeing by hop-on hop-off busses are attractive. Maps show the bus stops and the tours. Also online. But when exactly departes the next bus?
