Moving Around - Into Albania

Moving Around

By bus

From all the types of public transports, buses remain the best choice to travel around the country. The ticket prices are low and all the cities are well connected to one another. The only problem remains the time schedule since you won’t find easily timetables that reflect exactly the reality. Anyway, you can always check the Interurban Timetable here, and then leave some space for a mistake to be sure that you won’t miss any important meeting or event. Don’t hesitate to ask some locals for advice, since the departure place of buses is quite chaotic.
