Intercity Bus Schedule

The best way to travel through Albania is by bus. Unfortunately the bus information online is limited and can be quite confusing. We have tried to put all our knowledge on this page and will update it as often as possible.

There are four main bus stations throughout Tirana. You can easily walk to the International, Airport Shuttle and East stations, and there are nearby buses to take you to the North/South station. 

Note that in Albanian language names change their ending from definite to indefinite form (Tirana/Tirane, Shkodra/Shkoder), we've put the form you'll find written on buses.
