Querks of the Šibenik bus system

Citizens often complain about public transport in Šibenik. They say that it is unreliable, buses are often late, and sometimes they don’t show up at all. The existing public transport system isn’t functional, so don’t be surprised if you run into a problem.

Šibenik is one of the few cities that does not have public transport owned and operated by the city. At the moment, the city is in the process of setting up a communal city transport company that would handle public transportation in Šibenik. This new public transport will use alternative energy sources.
