Getting around

Tram

Combining the authentic Zagreb experience with practicality, trams provide your best bet for getting to know this wonderful city. Just as black cabs and double decker buses have become synonymous with London, so too have creaky, but efficient, 1950s and 60s trams with former communist countries - although their gradual replacement with newer models is well underway. Tram tickets can be bought at a kiosks and newsagents all around town for or on the tram itself for 10HRK. As trams and city buses are both run by ZET (Zagreb Electric Tram), tickets are valid for both forms of transport. If you're planning a day of intensive sightseeing it may be worth investing in a day pass for 30HRK. Passengers should stamp tickets the moment they board vehicles to avoid an on-the-spot fine from 500HRK to 800HRK. 15 day routes and 4 night routes are in operation in Zagreb, and each line tends to run every 5-10 minutes so there's rarely a need to check timetables except if you plan on catching one in the wee hours of the morning.

Public transportation - ZET

Bus

The bus service is generally used as a feeder service to the tram system from neighbouring suburbs, although some routes naturally enough criss-cross through the centre of town. The tickets operate in the same way as with the trams though the frequency of service can range from every 7 minutes to every 40-60 minutes depending on the given route. In addition, timetables require a fair amount of guesswork as departure/arrival times are given only for the first and last stops on each route, making trams a preferred option wherever possible.
