Local transportation

Public Transportation

There are three ways of public transportation - trams, buses and city railway. Trams and buses operate all day (every few minutes) and night (every hour). The best option for using buses and trams is the ZET Value Card. This card works via a top-up system, as soon as you add money to you card it is ready for use, a minimum amount of 10kn is needed to activate the card and the maximum amount peaks at 1000kn. The ZET value card can be used across all zones and lines and as an added bonus, it is transferable to other users. It can be purchased at all ZET shops and partner kiosks (Tisak).


You can find them in front of all major hotels, the train and bus stations and at numerous other central locations, or you can call:

RADIO TAXI ZAGREB: 1777 or 060 800 800

TAXI CAMMEO ZAGREB: 1212 or 060-7100
