The buses are a gift from the city of Istanbul. (Tbilisi City Hall.)

TBILISI, DFWatch–Tbilisi international airport is now serviced all night through by the regular daytime bus line number 37, Tbilisi City Hall informs.

Before the new schedule on July 4, line 37 had been operating until midnight, like other municipal bus lines in the capital.But now line 37 will have departures every 35 minutes through the night.

Ticket prices during the all-night schedule will be the same as during the day, which is 50 tetri (22 US cents, 20 euro cents). This is good news for travellers on flights that arrive or depart in the middle of the night who don’t want to spend extra money on a taxi into town.

Apart from budget prices, travellers may also enjoy roomier 36 seat buses that are a gift to Tbilisi from the city of Istanbul.

The route will remain the same: Main railway station, Heroes Square, Melikishvili Street, Rustaveli Avenue, Freedom Square, Kakheti highway and Tbilisi airport.
