 Bulgaria transportation guide. Book Bulgaria with Hostelbookers.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The lack of investment in public transport over the past 10–15 years has left it in a sorry state, with semi-derelict stations, run-down vehicles and demoralized staff, and although private bus companies have taken up the slack on major routes, the state-owned network has drastically contracted.
While transport remains cheap it is also slow, a failing compounded by Bulgaria's mountainous terrain and climatic extremes (which rapidly degrade tarmac), with train journeys between the north and south being particularly prone to roundabout routes and changes.
The fragmentation of the transport system is reflected in the timetables (razpisanie) in train and bus stations, which used to be on a clearly legible board but are nowadays often merely scribbled on a piece of paper stuck to the window of the ticket office.
