If you are spending your holidays in Split or just passing, the most economic mode of transport is public transport. Generally speaking, public transport in Split is very well organized. It is divided into four zones: the first zone includes the city of Split,  the second zone includes the cities of Solin, Stobrec, Podstrana and Klis, the third zone includes Kastela, Dugopolje and the area along the coast till Dugi Rat.

Zone four includes the cities of Trogir and Omis. So, the city parts are very well connected as well as areas outside the city. Public transport system in Split is run by the company Promet Split which has recently renewed its vehicle fleet with completely new, modern, comfortable and air-conditioned buses. However, there are still old buses which are not so comfortable.

Bus ticket sales and prices

Bus tickets can be purchased directly from a bus driver or at most kiosks in Split (kiosks of Tisak and Slobodna Dalmacija). If you buy a ticket at a kiosk, upon entering a bus you will have to show it to the driver who will then annul it with a stamp. It is possible to purchase a ticket only in cash.

Tickets purchased at kiosks are generally a bit cheaper then those purchased on a bus. Ticket prices depend on the zone you are travelling in. One-way ticket price for zone 1 is 11 kn, 13 kn for zone 2, 17 kn for zone 3 and 21 kn for zone 4. These prices are for adults while children from 6-11 have to pay 5 kn for a ticket for all zones. Children under 6 don't have to buy a ticket.

All the tickets are valid in one direction and have a limited time of use: 45 minutes for the first zone, 65 minutes for the second zone, 85 minutes for the third zone and 105 minutes for the fourth zone. Remember that driving without a ticket you can get fined in the amount of 50 kn which are to be paid immediately.

If you carry any luggage, you have to pay 5 kn extra per item.

If you intend to stay in Split for a longer period and wish to use public transport very often, the best thing to do is to buy the so called Karnet tickets (two way tickets) which cost 17 kn and are available only in blocks of 5 or 10 tickets which can be purchased only at kiosks.

Main bus stations in Split

Split has several main bus stations. The first one is Sukoisan which is situated next to the main Domovinskog rata street. After Sukoisan, about 300 m away, there is the second main bus station, Opcina. The third main bus station is Trznica (Green Market), Hrvatsko narodno kazaliste (Croatian National Theatre), western seafront by the church of Saint Francis and the station by the city harbour (next to the main bus terminal and the train station).

Sukoisan bus station is the station for suburban buses. The most popular suburban buses are 37 which goes all the way to Trogir and 60 which goes to Omis and stops also at the Green Market station.
