You just landed in Tbilisi airport, Georgia. It’s 3 AM, how do you get from Tbilisi airport to the city centre? A quick podcast explains the easiest way to get from Tbilisi Airport to the City Centre.
For more details here are some recommendations.
To get from Tbilisi International Airport (also known as Shota Rustaveli Tbilisi International Airport) to the city center of Tbilisi, you have several transportation options:
Taxi: Taking a taxi is one of the most convenient ways to get to the city center. There are official taxi services available at the airport, and you can find them just outside the arrivals terminal. Make sure to use the registered taxi services to avoid any scams and negotiate the fare before starting the journey.
We usually recommend our guests a Taxi App Bolt as from our experience it provides a good valuel, reliable and reasonably proced.
Airport Shuttle: Some hotels in Tbilisi offer shuttle services for their guests. If you're staying at a hotel, check with them in advance to see if they provide an airport shuttle.
Public Bus: The airport is connected to the city center by public buses. Look for bus number 37, which runs between the airport and Tbilisi city center. The bus stop is located near the arrivals terminal. However, please note that public buses might not be the most comfortable option, especially if you have a lot of luggage.
Metro: Tbilisi's metro system is an efficient and affordable way to reach the city center. The airport is connected to the city's metro network via the "Samgori" metro station. From the airport, you can take a taxi or a bus to reach Samgori station and then continue your journey by metro.
If you are staying in Baitshi - our Private Home, the nearest Metro for you will be Metro Avlabari.
If you are staying in one of our traditional Tbilisi apartments the nearest Metro is Metro Marjanishvili.
4. Private Transfers: You can arrange private transfers in advance through various transport companies or travel agencies. They can provide you with a driver who will meet you at the airport and take you directly to your destination in the city center.
Remember that the availability and schedules of public transportation might vary, so it's a good idea to plan your trip in advance, especially if you arrive late at night or early in the morning. Additionally, I recommend checking for any updates or changes regarding transportation options before your travel date.
Welcome to Tbilisi, enjoy exploring the city!
