Public Transport in Pula

Public Transport in Pula

Pula’s bus system is managed by Pulapromet. City buses connect the town center with all parts of the city. City traffic is divided into 3 zones. The first zone covers the city of Pula, the second zone closes the circle to Medulin, Vodnjan, Ložnjana, Premantura, and Peroja. The third zone is to Barbariga. In Pula, public city transport is organized with 8 bus lines. The most important bus lines are:

  • Line number 1 which connects main bus terminal with Stoja
  • Line number 2 which connects main bus terminal with Verudela
  • Line number 3 which connects Šija forest with Verudela

Pula Bus Prices

The city bus ticket can be bought directly from the driver and the price is 11 kn. The ticket is only valid in one direction and is limited to one hour. Pulapromet also offers contactless tickets. In principle, this is a card that looks like a credit card. You pay 75 kn for the first time (which includes a ticket price of 30 kn and a driving credit of 40 kn). If you are planning to spend a longer stay in Pula and use public transport frequently, then it is definitely worth paying for this ticket because the one-way fare is only 7 kn.

The ticket price for the second zone is 15 kn if purchased on the bus. If purchased for the contactless card, it’s 11 kn. For a trip to the third zone, the ticket price on the bus is 20 kn and 17 kn for the contactless card. In the fourth zone, the prices are 25 kn and 23 kn, respectively.

Children under the age of 6 years old accompanied by parents do not require a bus ticket. Passengers must enter through the front door and show the driver a valid ticket. If Pulapromet control catches you in a no-ticket ride, you will need to pay a fee of 50 kn on the spot.

The suburban bus route map is available here, and the timetable for suburban buses is here.

Pula bus contactless tickets

As previously mentioned, it is advisable to use contactless cards for longer stays in Pula and/or frequent use of public transportation. After the credit has been used, the card can be refilled by 20 kn, 40 kn,  60 kn and 100 kn. You can refill your card at these places:
