The city's planning is fairly simple, making practically all its districts easily accessible via public transport or by car.
Respubliki Street is the main thoroughfare crossing the larger part of the city. It is served by numerous buses and route vans (marshrutkas). Should you be travelling along the Respubliki St., the main University campus can be reached by taking buses №11, 14, 25, 30, 54 and getting off at either "Ploshad Bortsov Revolyutsyi" or "Gosbank" bus stops (for more details please see the route map at the links below).
When travelling by bus you have to buy your ticket from the conductor that works on the bus. When travelling by marshrutka don't forget to notify the driver beforehand so that he or she could stop at the required bus stop.
