With this you can take any bus or urban tram. Just think that a single ticket costs 72 DIM, and if you buy it on board it cost the double!
Remember that most of the buses are operating from 4:30 am to 23:30, then there are nightbuses which tickets cost 145 DIN.
Important lines are number 15 to Zemun, and number 40 that will take you to the 25th May Museum.
Trams are very useful, especially the circular 2, which will take you to almost all the most famous sights.
You can rent a bike for few Dinars at various points of the city. For example with IBike you pay 1.5 euro per hour for the first three hours, or a total 4.5 euro per day. Really very cheap.
