Buses usually start running at 5 a.m. and stops around midnight, even though there are night lines as well. Libertas Dubrovnik is the official company that operates the routes connecting all urban and suburban areas of Dubrovnik. Bus tickets can be purchased directly from the driver or at kiosks of Libertas or TISAK that can be found almost at every bus station.

The ticket is valid 59 minutes from the validation / stamping and can be used in all directions. There is also a daily ticket (30 Croatian Kuna) which lasts 24 hours from the first stamping and there is no restriction in the number of trips. Children under 6 years accompanied by an adult do not have to pay for the public transport.
