Regia Autonomă de Transport Bucureşti (RATB) is a public transport operator in Bucharest, Romania.

Overview[edit]

RATB operates a complex network of buses, trams and trolleybuses – in fact, RATB operates all public transport except the Bucharest Metro, which is managed by Metrorex. While owned entirely by the City Council, RATB is an autonomous company.

The RATB public transport services use a partially separate ticketing system to the Bucharest Metro (combined passes can be bought, as well as single, timed, combined tickets). There are plans for the two transport systems to be merged at some point in the future.
