take a taxi:

Rapid Taxi

Participants should be aware: do NOT get into cars that say just “taxi”
(i.e. no company name on the car), and which do not have registration

The cost is 1.3 LEI/km; the fare from the airport to the hotel
should be of max. 20 lei (approx. 8 -10 USD), while from the train station
it is max. 10 lei (5 USD).

Please make sure you take a licensed taxi – ask at the
information desk about the appropriate ones, and ask for the meter to be
turned on (in Romanian, meter = apparatul de taxat), as well as for receipt (receipt =  chitanta).  A phrase to use is, “Va rog, chitanta” (vuh rog kee-tahn-tzah).
