The bus to and from Brasov takes about an hour, maybe an hour and a half, and is a very cheap, and sometimes rough ride. It's variable: one bus was clean, comfy and air-conditioned, the other was a rust bucket with seats and a suspension that was as hard as rock. The bus usually passes through Rasnov on the way, and it's definitely worth stopping off there to see the town's fantastic castle.
Buses run every half hour or so from Autogara 2 in Brasov. See my Brasov page for more info on that.
Getting to Bran
We got there by taking a bus from Brasov bus station number 2. The ticket cost 6RON. Buses leave at 9am, 10am, 11am then at half hourly intervals finishing around 7 (I think). The front of the bus will say Bran, but its final destination is the little village of Moeciu. Our bus to Bran was horribly overcrowded but it was fine coming back. The bus also passes through Rasov with its lovely fortress on a hill.
By public bus
From Basov there are buses from Autogara 2 to Bran. They run every half hour during the week and hourly on the weekends. The cost in October 2007 was 3,5 RON. The bus will take you through Rasnov (Risnov on VT) to Bran. The 30 km take about 40 minutes or thereabouts.
From Brasov old town you need to take a local bus for 1,5 RON to Autogara 2 like no. 12 from the central bus station near Aro Palace hotel.

Cart- The Specific Way of Traveling at Bran
Traveling by car can be really amusing for the tourists. For those who don't know what a cart is... is some kind of a box with wheels, drawn by horses (one or two) or by a cattle or more. You should try walking in a cart and feel how do really a Romanian villager is living this present life. It bet that even your dreams aren't such archaic as this walk !
