Split Bus Station Stops All Lines Outside Croatia, Reduction in Domestic Lines Likely

March 15, 2020 – The Split Bus Station reacts to the effects of the coronavirus outbreak in Europe.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the border regime with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro has changed since Saturday night. Thus, the director of the Split Bus Station, Mate Jujnovic, said that even before the border decision, he decided to take precautionary measures, which is why he abolished all international lines, reports Slobodna Dalmacija.

In Croatia, all lines are still driving as normal, but probably not for long.

“All lines outside Croatia have been stopped. On Thursday and Friday, the lines to Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Montenegro were discontinued, and the line to Bosnia and Herzegovina was officially discontinued as of today. The last tour for BiH waited 12 hours at the border. Anyone who has purchased a ticket in advance for any of the canceled lines will receive a refund at the counter where the ticket was purchased,” says Mate Jujnovic, who also noted that on Monday, all Croatian carriers have a meeting at the Ministry of Sea, Transport and Infrastructure.

“So far, everything is running as usual within the country, but I suppose it will be reduced soon. There are no passengers and there is no need to drive so many lines. It is the same for everyone. Tomorrow, all carriers have a meeting at the competent ministry and we will ask everyone to reduce the number of lines within Croatia. It makes no sense that 40 buses run, for example, from Split to Zagreb without any passengers.

We will seek to reduce the number of lines and departures, and again that connections still exist and that the traffic runs as usual,” says Jujnovic.

He also notes that passengers can find all the necessary information on bus routes on their website ak-split.hr.

As the telephone line at the station was always busy, many passengers were probably unable to contact the operator to ask for individual lines. Thus, Jujnovic adds that passengers should search for the line of interest on its website. If they release the timetable, the line is still active. If there is no timetable, that route is no longer departing.

Data is updated continuously so that the web is currently the best and fastest means of information.
