The main convenience of the Tbilisi Metro is that it easily connects the city center with the train station and the bus stations Ortachala and Didoubé.
All 22 stations (Metro map) are signed in two languages: Georgian and English. There is a transition from the Sabourtalo branch to Akhmétéli – Varkétili. Understanding on the spot in the stations and branch management is not difficult.
Trailers leave often – you will have to wait 2.5 to 10 minutes depending on the time. By the way, the metro in Tbilisi works from 6 mornings until midnight. Stations are announced in Georgian and English.
Traveling by metro will only cost you 50 Tetri per person. The Metro tokens have been completely replaced by Metromoney’s practical plastic cards, on which the required amount is “amortized”.
One can buy the indicated card in the hall of any station of the metropolitan. The cost of an empty Metromoney is 2 GEL You can use these cards in the subway, buses, minibus (taxi ride). You can charge the card in subway stations or pay-box devices, located throughout the city for the convenience of passengers.
Municipal buses run in every city in Georgia. These are the new buses in yellow color. This is usually a medium sized bus for 40 and 60 passengers.
Buses stop only at stops, they operate strictly according to the schedule of 06:00 to 20:00. Many buses have electronic boards on which the route is written in Georgian and English, also on these charts one always indicates the following stop.
You can pay for the automated checkout and the Metromoney card. A standard ticket for a passage costs 50 Tetri. A plastic card is the most comfortable variant because it saves money. With this card, you will have the right to make transfers in the subway and on the bus lines for one hour totally free.
With the exception of large cities, all passenger services are provided by minibuses. These are “Ford Transit” yellow cars for 16-18 passengers. In small towns and cities in Georgia, all the appropriate minibuses can be used as minibuses.
The mode of operation of minibuses in each city is different. In Tbilisi, they start working from 08:00 to 20:00, in other parts of Georgia, especially where minibuses are practically the only means of transport, they work until the night. They literally flow in all directions and very often between major cities.
There are some important differences between the minibuses of Tbilisi and those of other cities. The most important of these is that in Tbilisi minibuses, in addition to the cash payment, there are reusable bus passes.
Minibuses are the most popular and cheapest type of intercity transportation in Georgia. They connect absolutely all the localities where the highway is built. Their roads generally end in the bus stations and the markets of the city.
Rail transport in Georgia is underdeveloped, largely because of the country’s mountainous terrain, which does not allow the creation of an extensive transport network. In fact, there is only one railroad in the country, which starts in Tbilisi, goes through Gori, Kjutaissi and ends in Batumi.
From the main direction, there are small branches, for example, to the port cities Poti and Zugdidi. Almost all employees speak Russian and English. By contacting Georgian railway staff for help, you will quickly understand how to buy a ticket and at which station you need to get off the train.
Georgian trains are similar to those existing in Russia and are divided into compartment trains and general trains. There is a fast daily train Tbilisi-Batoumi quite comfortable, leaving every morning. He overcomes the path in 6 hours. The official website of the Georgian Railways –http://www.railway.ge.
