Getting Around in Moldova

By Air

There are no internal air flights in Moldova.

By Rail

The railway in Moldova is run by Calea Ferata din Moldova (CFM). There are connections to most parts of the country and beyond.

By Road

Like the rest of Europe, traffic in Moldova drives on the right. Roads outside of Chisinau are generally in a bad condition.

Driving after dark is extremely dangerous, due to the tendency of Moldovans to walk in the roads in dark clothing, slow moving, hard-to-see horse carts, and the prevalence of farm animals wandering in the roads.


The most reliable and extensive domestic transport is bus – you will get to most parts of the country. Buses run between most of the larger towns and cities.


Taxis can be found everywhere. Fares should be negotiated in advance, though drivers prefer to charge per hour. Taxis are available by telephone or on the main streets. Taxi companies offer a blend of modern vehicles and decrepit older models, and the passenger does get to choose among them. Rates are reasonable. Most local cab drivers speak only Russian or Romanian. Two telephone-dispatch companies aimed at expatriates do have an English-speaker dispatcher and drivers who speak at least some English. Most expatriates rely heavily on these companies, which charge a flat rate, about $2 per trip.

Car Rental

There are a few car rental companies in Chisinau.

Documentation: An International Driving Permit is required.

Urban Transportation

Buses, trolleybuses and minibuses are cheap but notoriously crowded and unreliable. They all operate from 5 am-12 midnight with services every 15 minutes. Tickets for buses and trolleybuses can be purchased from kiosks or on board the vehicle. Minibus tickets are bought from the driver.
