Dubrovnik has an efficient public bus system, usually running from 5am to midnight. Tickets can be bought from a kiosk (tisak) or vending points found on major bus routes. Cards can also be bought, allowing unlimited travel for anything from an hour to a full day.
Dubrovnik is a wonderful city to explore on foot, as many of the main sightseeing attractions are in pedestrianised areas. The Old Town is pedestrianised, so taxis cannot enter and those with rental cars park in specially designated spaces outside the gates.
But metered taxis are generally available at hubs such as major bus stations, Gruz harbour, Pile Gate and Ploce Gate. Regular ferries connect the city to nearby islands in the Croatian Archipelago and it's seldom difficult to find transport to outlying areas and nearby towns.
Renting a car is one of the best ways to get around Croatia, but travellers need to be confident drivers to handle local road etiquette. That said, roads are well maintained and having a car allows visitors more freedom and independence to explore outlying parts of Croatia.
