The train is the cheapest way to come to Moldova. Unlike by plane you may come not just to the capital of Moldova but also to other cities of the country. The problem is that trains are usually very slow. So, if you want to save money and you have enough time you may go to Bucharest by plane and then take the overnight train to Moldova. Train ticket costs about $28. At the border you will stay a bit until the gague wheels are lifted to fit Moldavian tracks.

Buses are widely used for going to Moldova or from Moldova to another countries as they are much cheaper than flights by plane and at the same time they are quicker than trains. Moldavian bus companies offer trips to most European cities. There's regular bus connection with Bucharest. There are about five buses every day. So, it could be a variant instead of train to reach Moldova from Bucharest. However, a big disadvantage is that you should stay longer at the border. So, a trip by bus from Bucharest usually takes about 10 hours.
If you prefer to travel by car you are welcome too! If you chose this variant you'd better buy country map before your visit. The problem is that often people in villages speak just Russian and Romanian. So, you will not get a reply to the question in English. However, who knows, probably you are lucky and you will meet a person who speaks English too. If you travel on night you will hardly meet anybody outside, so you will even have no possibility to ask how to drive somewhere.
