Dubrovnik Bus Station

Dubrovnik’s main bus station or terminal (locally called Autobusni Kolodvor) is located right next to the ferry terminal in Gruž harbor/suburb on about 3 km from the Old Town (see the map below).

the main bus terminal in dubrovnik

It is a modern and large, recently built terminal which features bus information and booking window, baggage (luggage) storage, very useful Dubrovnik Tourist Board Information window, pay toilets, ATM machine, public telephone boxes, newsagent stand…

A small shop where you can buy necessary items, as well as Croatian phone cards, is also there while a larger Konzum supermarket is nearby too.

The terminal is very practical and well organized with a large shaded waiting area which is pretty useful in the summer months if you have to wait for a bus for longer.

All buses from and to Dubrovnik depart and arrive at this bus station including all international bus lines as well as buses to major Croatian places (like from and to Split). The Bus to Dubrovnik Airport also departs from here as well as Dubrovnik to Cavtat bus.

The Station has very good local bus connections with other parts of the town as several local buses run from here to the Old Town, Lapad, Ploče, Kono, or Sveti Jakov.

You can get the following local buses from this station (see bus map):

• Bus 1, 1a, 1b, 3 to Pile (Entrance in the Old Town) (see video)
• Bus 7 to Lapad and Babin Kuk
• Bus 8 to Ploče and Sveti Jakov

If none of the local buses is suitable, a handy taxi station is also part of the terminal from where a taxi driver should take you to any part of the town for up to 100 HRK (15 Euro)

Bus Tickets Booking

  • You can not reserve or book bus tickets online. Yes, you can book your bus tickets online. You can also buy your ticket as soon as you arrive in Dubrovnik for a departure of several days or weeks in advance. I would recommend you to do that especially in the summer as buses get very busy at the time, so you can find yourself stranded for a day (or even two) in Dubrovnik. In case you prefer to choose your seating, buying a ticket well in advance is also advisable. As buses leave and arrive almost 24 hrs a day, this main bus station is open from very early in the morning until quite late at night.
