Public bus transport in Rijeka

Public transportation is divided into 4 zones. The KD Autrolej buses are recognizable because of their orange color. Prices and types of bus tickets are one-way, two-way, daily and weekly passes with monthly and annual passes available as well. One-way tickets can be purchased directly from the bus driver. The tickets must be paid for in cash.

After purchasing a ticket, it is necessary to time stamp it in the ticket stamping device, which is usually immediately behind the driver. The ticket can be used in one direction of travel and the passenger has the right to change several buses, provided they do not exceed the driving time limit.

The time limit for a bus ticket for the first zone is 60 minutes, the second zone is 70 minutes, the third zone is 90 minutes and the fourth zone is 130 minutes. Two-way travel tickets can be purchased at kiosks and in KD Autotrolej offices. The same rules and time limit apply as with one-way travel tickets that are bought directly on the bus.

      Hi Klara,

      Thanks for reaching out!

      It’s only a 15-minute drive, so an Uber is probably the easiest option. You can also visit the main bus station in Rijeka and ask if they have a bus that goes there. I came across this bus schedule, but it should be confirmed with the bus station.
