Public transport

Buses & Trolleybuses
A substantial network of city-owned buses and trolleybuses criss-crosses the city seven days a week from around 05:00 until about 23:00. Tickets, which are valid for one single journey of any length and on either form of transport, cost 1.80Lt and can be bought from any Kauno Spauda kiosk or R Kiosk shop in the city. Alternatively, for an extra 0.20Lt buy one directly from the driver. Tickets need to be validated in the appropriate electronic machine when boarding the vehicle. A small fleet of public transport runs an even smaller schedule of journeys through the night in Kaunas, albeit only on Friday and Saturday nights. Trolleybuses N°14N and N°15N plough routes between the very end of Savanorių and the train station. Bus N°37N runs at ninety degrees to this route between Vilijampolė and Žaliakalnis. Route maps and schedules are posted at all stops, making getting around the city a fairly simple task.  For more information, see the excellent website at
The private minibus (maršrutinis taksi) is one of the greatest social inventions of all time. In Kaunas they often sport the same numbers and plough the same routes as the above-mentioned machines, but have the advantages of not having to stop everywhere and being able to weave in and out of traffic. Slightly more expensive to travel on at 2.50Lt for a journey of any length, stick your arm out anywhere in the street, pay the driver (or pass the money down the minibus if it’s busy) and shout when you want to stop.
