Tursib is the local public transport operator in Sibiu, Romania, operating bus service. It also services outlying areas and villages. It is a joint-stock company created in 1998.[1] Originally, Tursib's network also included trolleybuses and a suburban/rural tram line to Rășinari. However, the company proposed in 2009 to discontinue trolleybus operation, and after approval by the local council[2] the last trolleybus line closed in November 2009.[3] Regular service on the Sibiu–Rășinari tramway ceased on 28 February 2011,[4] and very limited operation that took place later – mainly only for visiting tourist groups – ended in 2012.[5]

Tursib's service area covers 120 square kilometres (46 sq mi), and the fleet of 100 buses and three minibuses serves 21 routes.[6]
