So far, a lot has been said about Belgrade's trams & trolley's and even the commuter train system.
On this page, I will try & present Belgrade's main mode of public transit - buses - as best as I can.

City of Belgrade is served by well over 1500 buses, operated by three main entities:

- "GSP Beograd" - the city's main public transit firm operates around ~1,000 buses.
- Various private contractors, subsidized out of the city's budget operate a fleet of some ~500 buses.
- "Lasta" - this Belgrade-based, state-owned firm provides a large number of buses for Belgrade transport needs.

And last but not least, a small selection of buses that are operated by a number of private firms ...

Actually that mess with advertisment started when ,city allowed to privat co.to do the job same as public,so concurention brought some good an bad habits,on the other hand that was proved as good barrier for grafiti!,wierdbut also private co.brought us bus lcd screens,gps tracking..an public follow the same...and actually advertasment can look very good if its done proffessionaly..

I never noticed that much advertisement, are you sure that those pictures were not taken with the intent to picture the advertisement? Because when I was there I saw some buses with ads, but the most were Yellow.... and on all of these buses the ads look bad because the old buses are covered over the windows, which can only result in a bad look, and the new ones are covered on the front too, which is stupid because it has too many angles and the they leave half the front in the original color and the other half has the color of the ad... at least the public provider (GSP) should limit the ad space to a frame under the windows, to keep a nice, uniform and clean look.

Simple reason for advertising:
The tickets are cheap compared with other cities (especialy because average trip is long in big city). One ticket is 0.45eur and month pass is 20eur for workers and 10eur for students, pensioners, pupils. On the other hand, main type of transport is bus in congested roads, which is not so cost-effective solution.

After a successful test run during last year's Summer Universiade, Belgrade's Tourist organization will continue running their "Tram called Belgrade" sightseeing tour program from February to October

It's interesting how big cities like Belgrade or Thessaloniki can get by without a metro system.
For example Bucharest has one of the largest public transportation-systems in Europe, with over 500 trams on 30 tram-lines, 3 light rail-lines, 350 trolleybuses on 20 trolley-lines, 1500 buses on 121 bus-lines, and 70 km of metro lines, and still traffic in rush-hours is an absolute horror. I couldn't even imagine what would happen if the 700.000 people riding metro every day would suddenly try to get to their job using also surface transport.

It is not only the quantity of trams and buses that decides about modal split and traffic density, but their speed, right of way and capacity. Two trams stopping only to change passengers can carry more people than 10 stuck in traffic jam.

People who use public transport don’t occupy that much space. Regardless of which they use, a metro or a bus they wouldn’t put much strain on the traffic flow. People who use cars every day is what’s creating those terrible traffic jams.

My point exactly. There are some bus lanes in Belgrade but we could definitely have some more.
