The Sofia public bus system (Bulgarian: София Автобусен транспорт) forms part of the public transport network of Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria.

In operation since 1935, the system presently comprises 89 routes.

History[edit]

The public bus transport in Sofia developed relatively late compared to the other types of transport in the city. The first operational line was opened on 20 April 1935. Soon after that six more lines were opened, bringing the total network length to 23 km.[2]

During the communist era, the bus fleet consisted mainly of Ikarus and Bulgarian-made Chavdar buses. After the political changes in 1989, however, the fleet has gradually been modernised.
