How to get to SUZA
Here is a printable version of the information below
By a taxi (cab)
All official cabs in Bratislava have a yellow light on the roof
with a sign TAXI. There are two types of cabs in Bratislava. The first comprises cabs organized
in taxi companies; the others are independent cab drivers. The former ones have a fixed price per km,
the price varies slightly with individual companies. Each of these cabs has a
5-digit phone number on its door, the first two digits being 16. The independent cab drivers do not have any
phone number on the door of their cars and they are
allowed to charge customers any amount per km and might charge much
higher fare than organized cabs.
Ask the driver to take you to SUZA, Drotarska cesta 46. The
organized cab driver will charge you about 550 SKK from the airport, about 300 SKK from the bus station, and about 200
SKK from the railway station. There are
plenty of organized cab drivers at the airport. At the bus station look to your
right when you get off the bus, still inside the terminal, there are some
organized cabs there. More organized cabs wait outside of the building. There
are plenty of both types of cabs at the railway station.
By public transport
To take public transport you need to get a ticket before you
get on a bus (trolleybus, tram). You can get a ticket at slot machines which
accept only coins. At the railway station and the bus station you can get a
ticket at stalls as well. Ask for “listok na dopravu”. There is a stall selling
tickets next to the bus stop at the airport as well but it is closed on
weekends. When you get on the bus validate your ticket in a marker.

bus at the last stop (Safranova). Continue some 150
meters in the direction of the bus. SUZA will be on your left. You can buy a
ticket inside the railway station, or in a stall next to the bus stop. Ask for
a ticket for 14 SKK.
(2) From the bus station. Take a trolleybus #210, which
stops right in front of the main entrance to the bus station, will take you to
the railway station. Then follow (1). You can buy a ticket inside the building.
