Numerous tram and bus services operate regularly during the daytime, whilst a limited number of lines are available during the night. To travel on Zagreb’s trams and buses you will need to have a valid ticket that can be purchased on Tisak newsstands or directly on the coaches (Croatian Kuna needed; payment by credit card possible on Tisak newsstands, but not on the coaches). A single 90-minute valid ticket costs 10.0 HRK (≈ 1.3 EUR). A daily ticket costs 30.0 HRK (≈ 4 EUR). Tickets valid for 3 days (70.0 HRK (≈ 9.3 EUR)) or 7 days (150.0 HRK (≈ 20.0 EUR)) are available at ZET selling points (address: Frane Petrića 4, near the central square).
