Public transport in Stavanger consists mainly of a comprehensive bus network that runs from a main terminal in the city centre. Single tickets are available; however, visitors planning a lot of travel may consider a day pass good value, or even the seven-day pass. Taxis are available but rates are fairly high. Additional charges of up to 45 percent apply at night and on weekends. Many visitors opt to hire cars, and driving in Stavanger is relatively easy for experienced drivers who are familiar with Norway's traffic laws. Luckily, the city centre is fairly compact and many attractions are within walking distance.
