Travel inside Lithuania
Buses and trolleybuses
The local public transport authorities operate a large network of buses and trolleybuses. You can obtain tickets from newsstands and from the driver (this may make extra cost).
The traffic is usually very heavy in Vilnius and it's often not easy to find a space for parking on the street. Use of headlights is obligatory at all times.
Taxis can be hailed on the street or at ranks at the railway and bus stations as well as in the old town. Anyway it's worth order a taxi by phone. Ensure the meter is either switched on or agree a price in advance. Most recommended taxi companies are the following:
- Autvela (1409)
- Denvila (1423)
- Vilniaus Taksi (1800).
Be careful, the local drivers are erratic and make dangerous manoeuvres.
