Moving Around the City by Bus

Tirana e Re Bus

Bus transportation in Tirana offers convenience as buses are readily available throughout the city. However, they often get crowded, and the payment system is traditional, with a conductor onboard collecting fares. A ticket costs 40 cents if you’re moving around Tirana.

Check out Tirana’s transportation network with these bus routes to help you navigate around the city easier.

Note: To travel to other cities like Gjirokastër, Berat, or Sarandë, simply head to South and North Albania Bus Terminal, (check the list of cities on their website).

Furgons for Reliable Transportation Choices

Furgons are the backbone of Albania’s transportation system, offering a convenient and affordable way to travel between cities and towns. These minivans crisscross the country, picking up passengers along the way and delivering them to their destinations. They operate as a reliable mode of transport for traversing urban landscapes or regions situated at a distance from the city centre.

Tour Around on Electric Scooters

(You can also rent a bike if you enjoy this activity more.)

Catch a Ride With a Taxi

Taxis are your best bet for quick and reliable transportation within areas or cities. Just wave one down or head to a designated taxi stand, and soon, you’ll be easily zipping through the streets. Or you can reach out to taxi companies, and they’ll dispatch a driver to your location. (Unfortunately, we don’t have an Uber platform in Albania.)

Popular taxi brands in Albania:

  • Smart Taxi
