  1. Hello, I need to go from Pag island to Split airport in July to catch a flight at 1.00 pm. Can you please tell me what are the best options. Thanks so much, Michael

    • Hi Michael,

      you proberly will be able to manage if you do the following, the first bus from Novalja (Pag) to Zadar leaves about 5.50 am, so take that one. once in Zadar you take the next bus direction Split, if possible find one which stops in Trogir (Ask for bus to Trogir), from Trogir you take city bus number 37 to the airport. If you have to wait to long for next bus to Trogir (From Zadar), take the next bus To Split, from Split you then take the airport bus to Split airport, in either case i would guess you should be able to make to the airport till around 11 am.

      Brgds, Morten

      • Mostar-Split arriving by bus. Booked at Adria in Kastel Stafilic with flight next morning. Does the town bus 37 stop near the Adria or would I have to go the 1.5k extra to the airport and – I suppose – get a taxi back to the Adria? A traveller comments elsewhere that he was met with a rude rebuff for the latter. (Do you find all these queries monotonous?!)

        • Hi Margaret,

          I assume you mean Hotel Adria, the hotel is situated by the road where bus nr. 37 passes, i am not sure where the bus stop is, but going to the airport is for sure not necessary, try to ask a fellow passanger or the driver (they can be rude, but not all of them are) if he could point out where you have to get off the bus.

          If i find queries monotonous, no i don’t, actually i find it quite interesting.

          Best, Morten

  2. Hi Michael,
    i have to be at the airport of split about 11.45 am. Therefore i want to take the bus 37 from the centre. Can you tell me please at which time i should catch the bus in split?I can`t find the duration of the journey nowhere.
    thanks a lot

    • Hi Stef

      Bus number 37 runs more or less every hour, but it is easier to take the airport bus. just google city buses in Split and you should find all information needed.

      Best, Morten

  3. Hello,

    I need to get from Split airport to Hvar island. I just want to check that getting the Airport bus ‘Pleso – Prijevoz’ to split ferry port then a ferry to Hvar is the best/cheapest/quickest option?

    Also, what is the ferry situation like from Split to Hvar? I haven’t been able to find much information other than just buy a ticket when you get there.


    • Hello Amir

      yes you first have to take bus from the airport to the main bus station in Split, which is just next to the ferry terminal, from there you have several daily catamaran departure to Hvar town, and car ferry to Stari Grad on Hvar. The catamaran are operated by Krilo Jet and Jadrolinija. You can buy the catamaran ticket at the ferry terminal, but also online.



  4. Hello! I am arriving at Split airport in mid August, landing from an international flight with Croatia Airlines at 1:45pm.. I am hoping to get the 3pm ferry to Hvar (as the 4:15pm ferry takes double the time). Assuming my plane is on time, do you think I could make it through immigration and baggage collection and to the harbour quickly enough? Maybe if I book a private transfer rather than take a bus?? Otherwise, are there other ferry/boat options other than the 3pm & 4:15pm ferries with Jadrolinija? Thanks.

    • Hi Kim,

      It is very unlikely that you will manage to catch the 3 pm departure (As the bus will wait for all passengers to get out), as alternative to the 4.15pm departure you mention there is a departure with Krilo jet, which leaves Split at 5 pm and arrives in Hvar at 6 pm. If you book at private transfer which leaves immediately when you are out of migration you have bigger chance of catching the catamaran, but is still questionable, and remember you basically risk loosing the catamaran ticket for the 3 pm departure which you will have to buy upfront to be sure to have a spot on that departure.

      Hope that helps you a bit


  5. Hello!
    I will arrive in Split next Tuesday at 5 pm. I need to go to Baska Voda. Which combination will be the best? Do you know what time the last bus leaves the center of Split towards Makarska via Baska Voda?

    Thank you in advance for your answer.
