Tips on city transport in Šibenik, Croatia

You must immediately validate your travel ticket on the appropriate device when you enter a bus. If you don’t do this, your ticket won’t be valid. However, if you buy a ticket from a driver,  you don’t have to validate it. A driver will automatically validate it. In addition, you must buy a ticket for the correct tariff zone.

If you want to buy a ticket on a bus, prepare small coins. Otherwise, there is a possibility a driver will not be able to refund you the rest.

If an authorized person finds you without a valid ticket, you must give them the information about your identity. If you refuse, the controller may call the police to determine your identity. Controllers may also appear as civilians.

You can also carry your pets on a bus, but you must follow the carrier’s general rules available here.
