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.
