CITY TRANSPORT (TRAMS AND BUSES)
City transport is free to use for students of the University of Sarajevo. It makes Sarajevo unique city in the region and one of the few in Europe to offer this. If you decide to use public city transport, you will have a tram, trolleybus, bus and minibus network that will allow you to reach any significant location in Sarajevo. How to get free pass? You need to provide:
- 1 photo of yourself (small for documents),
- Certificate of your student status at the University of Sarajevo (issued, signed and stamped by the academic coordinator or the student services upon your enrolment at the hosting UNSA unit where you have your classes. The document must be in the local language. In the certificate, it has to be stated that you are a current student enrolled in the current academic year – redovan).
The photo and the certificate must be brought to the GRAS office (address: Ćumurija 4) every working day from 7,00 until 15,00h. Submitting those documents, you will receive an electrical pass, enabling you to use all city transport in the Canton of Sarajevo (trams, buses, minibuses, electrical busses) from both city transport companies (GRAS and Centrotrans).
