I was talking about lifts. When talking about moving stairs, these are indeed present at almost every station but.... not in all stations they do double every normal stair from the surface to the station itself, at least not for every entrance. There may be cases that these doesnt even run sometimes.

But try to use RATB (surface public) vehicles if you want to visit they allow you to see more of the city.

There are four Bucur LF trams: #401 (built in 2007 and put in service in 2009) and #402,403,404,405 (these four have been built between 2010-2011 and will be put in service this summer).

Beautiful! Thanks for the pics & info. Is the area around those new stations densely populated? Are there indications when Drumul Taberei will be served by metro?

There is quite a high density in this N-W extension of Bucharest, not due to apartment blocks, but due to very tightly packed houses.

The first section of the M5 will start this autumn (Center - Drumul Taberei). They are doing geodesic studies now.

Two metro stations to be inaugurated today

JUNE 30TH, 2011 AT 9:00 PM

Works on the two stations added to the metro line 4, Jiului and Parc Bazilescu, were completed, and Metrorex conducted tests on them for nearly two weeks. According to Realitatea.net, the public will be granted access to the new stations as of today, 10am. Metrorex’s plans to extend line 4 includes another 2.5 km-long segment and two more stations, Laminorului and Lac Straulesti, on which construction works may start next year. The estimated costs for this project amount to RON 700 M. “Given that works will start in a year’s time and would last two years, I estimate this segment, joining us to Lac Straulesti, may start running sometime around 2015,” the director of Metrorex S.A., Gheorghe Udriste, stated, in February.

PwC, Salans, Metroul SA land EUR 8.6 mln metro consultancy contract for M7
AUGUST 26, 2011 AT 12:09 PM

Metrorex, the metro network operator in Bucharest, has signed a EUR 8.6 million (RON 36.3 million) contract for design and consultancy of the new metro Line 7, that will connect Bragadiru and Voluntari and which will be built through a public-private partnership. The companies that will do the design, assistance and consultancy for this project are PricewaterhouseCoopers Management Consultants, PricewaterhouseCoopers Audit, Metroul SA and Salans Moore and Associates SCA. Metroul SA has previosuly won bids for various segments of the Bucharest metro and is owned by a group of Romanian individuals.

The new metro line will have a length of about 25 kilometers and 30 stations. The Romanian Ministry of Transport estimates that the project will be completed in a period of 7-8 years after beginning the work.

Bragadiru-Voluntari line was among the projects presented by the Romanian Transport Minister Anca Boagiu during a working visit to China, which took place last week. The value of investment was estimated at around EUR 2 billion, which should be covered by the private investor in the public-private partnership.

The Bucharest metro system carried 43 million passengers in the first quarter of the year, according to data from the Transport Ministry. Metrorex has recently increased ticket and subscription prices, and has also recently installed 35 metro card vending machines across its network. The devices accept payments made with VISA and MasterCard cards, as well as in cash with RON 1, 5, 10, and RON 50 banknotes, but also with coins of 10 and 50 bani, without giving change.

The ROCAR AUTODROMO (2000) prototype models were Rocar's only chance to "survive". The Autodromo bus is cooler than the boring Citaros, and the Autodromo trolleybus is cooler than the Irisbus Citelis ones.
Great.....

Sadly, there were no more than the Autodromo's seen in the pics above. As any good thing in Romania it only lasts 3 days or if it's smth made, only the prototype. It's not a 100% rule, but it's far more applicable than most others.
