One of the main transport points in Sofia is the central bus station. It is the base of numerous coach operators, offering domestic and international routes. Its position next to the central railway station makes the train to bus connections easy.
The central bus station is hosted in a new building with shops, restaurants, exchange offices, newspaper kiosks and a 24 hours waiting area making it a great and secured place to spend your time waiting, especially at night.
How to get there:
Metro: The bus stations can be easily reached by Metro line 2, station Railway Station
Walking: 20 minutes from St Ne
Taxi: Taxis are easily available in front of the Central Bus Station. OK Supertrans is the only taxi company allowed to pick up passengers from there. Their cars wait outside. Be cautious as Sofia is famous for “fake taxis” that charge many times the normal fare and often look very similar to the OK Supertrans cars. Always check the price sticker before entering the taxi. A ride to the city center should not cost more than 5-6 lv.
How to buy a ticket: Dozens of bus companies operate the different routes and sell tickets independently Signage of departure times and destinations (often in Bulgarian) are posted in front. We recommend you to use the official bus station website (http://www.centralnaavtogara.bg/#b) to check for buses to your destination.
