Croatia Bus Information
The Bus Service is generally very good in Croatia – buses are prompt and efficient and cover the local areas well. There are also very good wider-reaching bus routes spanning Croatia so if you want to do a longer journey you are well catered for. Just bear in mind that whilst comfortable, most Croatia Buses don’t have on-board toilets and make frequent stops instead. This usually works well. The national buses are very similar to the UK National Express set up.
To buy ticket for all buses it is usual to pay on the bus or at the bus station – not online. You may also need to pay extra for luggage (usually a small amount).

Luggage Storage at Split Port Bus Station
If you are catching the ferry from Split Port or a bus from the Bus Station and have some time to spare, it is useful to know that you can leave your luggage at the ‘Garderobe’ at the port Bus Station which is right across from where you get the ferries.
You can see where the the left luggage facility is on the map extract below (see red marker) and you can see it here: Location of Luggage Storage at Split Port – Google Street View. It is very convenient as the whole port area is not very big. On the image below, just under where it says “Split”, is actually the waterfront promenade (the “Riva”) which is right in front of the Old Town of Split so you are really close to it to do a bit of sightseeing and there are plenty of restaurants and cafe’s all along the sea edge to have lunch or a coffee while you wait for the ferry. It’s all very convenient. You can see that one ferry goes to Korcula for example, from really near the red marker. The link to this Google Map is here – Location of Luggage Storage at Split Port – Google Maps.
Just let us know if you’d like our local Representative to set up a transfer from Split Airport to the port for you, a journey which takes about 30 minutes. The airport is very small and you are usually through it very quickly. See transfer prices here – Transfers in Split & Trogir
Or, if you’ve decided to hire a car at the airport what you’d do is drive the car into the ferry queue and then go off for a coffee/lunch etc and then come back about half an hour before the ferry departs, ready to drive on to the ferry. That is what everyone does. Our local Rep can arrange car hire for you also with a local supplier, to collect from the airport – see here –Car Hire in Split & Trogir or we also have a DIY cheaper option that you can do via our website through Rhino Car Hire.
