Public buses and trolleybuses run from around 5am until midnight. Information about schedules can be found at bus and trolleybus stops and online at www.vilniustransport.lt.
Electronic tickets can be purchased at press kiosks (called “Lietuvos spauda”) or at the information desks of Maxima supermarkets. Individual paper tickets can be bought from the driver, however during COVID-19 pandemic drivers do not sell tickets. A single ticket with a discount for students costs 0.50 euro*. Smart Vilnius provides apps for m-parking and m-ticket.
Students are advised to buy a monthly ticket as it has a significant discount for ISIC card holders. These can be purchased at “Lietuvos spauda” press kiosks. More information on the ticket system is at www.vilniustransport.lt.
The public transport app Trafi will help you to plan your journey in real time – and it works even without the internet.
*NB! Don’t forget to validate your ticket on the bus or trolleybus. Vilnius is known for its strict ticket checkers (Keleivių kontrolė).
If you’re in a hurry, you can always take a taxi, which tends to be cheaper if you order one by phone or through an app such as Bolt, Uber or other.
