Acces to Bran is usually done by bus via Brasov. Buses to Bran start every 30 minutes on weekdays and every hour on weekends from Brasov's bus terminal #2 (located on Avram Iancu street no. 114, near the city's main stadium). The trip takes about 40 minutes.

If you're heading directly to Bran from Brasov's main train station a faster option is to go by train from Brasov to the Rasnov (a town halfway on the main road between Brasov and Bran) and catch one of the above mentioned Brasov-Bran buses there. Trains between Brasov and Rasnov run approximatively every hour between 8am and 8pm; these relatively little known trains are operated by a private rail company, Regiotrans.

It's also possible to get to Bran across the mountains from Campulung, but buses are less frequent (just two-three per day).
