Zagreb transport is designed for everyone’s convenience; it is efficient and well-developed. Consisting of trains, buses, and trams, getting around Zagreb would not be a problem for everyone, particularly tourists.
The city’s tram network operates for 24 hours; there is what they call as the “day time lines” which serve passengers from 4AM to 12Am and the night lines operating from 12AM to 4AM. On occasional times, the city’s bus lines sometimes replace the tram’s night lines.
It would be good to note that trams in the city do not operate on weekends and public holidays. During these days, you can opt for buses instead. Every stop of the trams has a map to help you figure out the shortest and better route for you.
Buses in the city are also composed of day and night lines. However, there are more of the first (around 113) than the latter (just 4). Like the trams, it also uses the same system for ticketing.
Around the upper and lower towns of Zagreb, there is a historic furnicular railway that is considered to be one of the world’s steepest. To get in this transportation, you can use the ticket for tram and buses.
A single ticket costs around 8 Kunas or about € 1.1; this is valid for 1.5 hours so make sure you get to your transportation right away upon purchase. You can buy the tickets in many of the city’s newspaper stands and ZET ticket office. You can also get them from the tram or bus drivers, however, if you get it from these people, you must pay them with their local currency, the Kuna.
Many of the attractions in Zagreb can be explored on foot, but knowing the city’s transports will prove to be very convenient for many reasons.
