Tiraspol Transportation: 16 reviews and 28 photos

Before the resumption of the train service into and out of Transdniester, taking a bus was the only economical way of reaching Tiraspol. From Chisinau’s central bus station there are regular buses to Tiraspol via Bendery leaving every half hour from about 6.30am to 6.30pm. Buses for Tiraspol leave from the last bus bay at the back of Chisinau’s Central Station (near the central market) and you can buy your ticket before boarding the bus from a specially designated ticket office just beside the Tiraspol bus bay. The conductor will point you in the right direction and will present you with an entry form which must be filled out for presentation to border officials. From what I remember the cost of the ticket is 25 moldovan lei. The journey takes between 1½ - 2 hours depending on the border crossing.
Returning to Chisinau from Tiraspol you can take a bus or maxitaxi from Tiraspol’s bus/train station. You can buy the ticket direct from the driver in Moldovan lei or transdniestrian roubles (25-30 lei or equivalent in roubles). Make sure you are in time for the last bus of the day (between 17.00 and 18.30) or you will be stranded in Tiraspol which will lead to problems regarding overstaying your stay and registration with authorities (see separate tip on Registration in ‘warnings’ tips)
