OTP to BrasovMy flight arrives at OTP at 5:10pm in the evening. I have to go through the custom and then buy a local SIM card to re-connect to the world, so that will probably take me to about 6:30 to 7pm. Do I have to stay in Bucharest for the night because it's already too late going to Brasov?
I have been reading on line forums, all people are saying that there are no direct transportation from the airport to Brasov except for hiring a taxi with a negotiated price, or go to Gara de Nord in Bucharest and then take train to Brasov, however with my late arrival I am not sure by the time I make it to Gara de Nord there will still be trains to Brasov.
Does anyone know
1. How long is the drive from OTP to Brasov if I can negotiate a decent price with the taxi driver?
2. If I had to go to Gara de Nord, when is the last train to Brasov and how long does it take?
3. And if the train option is still doable, is it safe to walk with my luggage at night in Brasov or there will still be taxis around?
Please let me know, many thanks!

1. no need taxi from otopeni to brasov, as mention you have late trains .
2. it is safe to walk with your luggage at night in Brasov
if you arrive to OTP at 5:10pm I guess you will be with your bag out at 17:40 pm
to buy sim card take 5-10 minute including the shop person who will help you
put the sim in the phon . so maximum at 18:00 you are ready to take bus 780 to
the gara de nord train station .
timetable of bus 780 :
ZI DE LUCRU = week days
SAMBATA = suterday
DUMINICA = sunday
the buss from bucharest to brasov pass the highway near the airport.
the problem is that there is no a station wo wait for the bus and he will stop there
and also usualy he depart bucharest full of passengers .
the trains to brasov are :
20:30 - 23:13
21:20 - 23:59
22:00 - 00:42
