RATB buses at night / Lines 780 and 783 to Bucharest - Henri Coanda Airport, Otopeni
Because more and more people are asking us about the express lines, which connect the "Henri Coanda" Otopeni International Airport with Bucharest, we decided to write this article with all the necessary information.
Since 2012, RATB has taken measures to supplement the number of buses on the 780 and 783 express lines, the only ones going from / to Otopeni Airport. And also from 2012, line 783 also circulates at night.

A trip costs 3.5 lei, regardless of the hour. At night, an 783 bus runs approximately 40-45 minutes between Unirii Square and Otopeni Airport. But the day does more due to the traffic and the considerable number of stations. You can buy trips from RATB centers, which are found in most stations. At the airport, at the Arrivals station, you also have ticket machines, as well as a ticket office where you can request additional information.
At night, to reach the Unirii Square, call special RATB lines. They travel from / to the 2 Unirii Square, where the 783 express line ends.
If you do not want to go by taxi, 780 and 783 express lines can be a good alternative to get to the airport.
But RATB still has work to do on the 2 express lines. It would be better to reduce the number of stations, at least in the Băneasa-Otopeni area, and to upgrade the buses for these routes. The electronic display and announcements must be in Romanian and English. The stations at the airport, at Unirii Square and at Basarab Train Station should be better signposted, there should be electronic displays with timetable, route and other information. Let the world know that there are stations for express lines 780 and 783, not to look for guesses. RATB does things on its knees and in Romanian style "let it go like this". It should also invest in quality and finishes.
Pleasant trips and clear sky!
