The islanders of southern Dalmatia are soon to have their transport wishes granted with the introduction of a new schedule to run from Dubrovnik to Kolocep this winter.
As Morski writes on the 18th of December, 2019, through the administrative department for tourism, economy and maritime affairs, the City of Dubrovnik has made it possible for public transport to take place twice a day today from Dubrovnik to Kolocep, more precisely from the port of Gruz in Dubrovnik to Gornje Celo on the nearby Elaphite island.
Namely, after a public tender was announced and completed, the Mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, signed a three-year contract worth a massive 1.15 million kuna on transportation with the owner of the trade company “Josip”.
The passenger ship “Europa” has a capacity of 63 passengers (33 of which are indoors) and adapted to winter navigation conditions. It will depart daily from the port of Gruz at 06:30 and 15:30 and its returns from Gornje Celo on Kolocep are scheduled for 07:15 and then again at 16:00 with the second ship.
Such a schedule will be valid from December the 18th, 2019 to February the 1st, 2020, and then, in agreement with the local administration on the island of Kolocep, or according to the needs of the islanders, a new schedule will be made.
The ride from Dubrovnik to Kolocep with the Europa ship on this new schedule will be free of charge for students and pensioners, adults resident on the island will pay a ticket costing a mere 10 kuna per direction, while for non-residents, the price will stand at just 20 kuna per direction.
