There is a scheduled bus service from the bus station in town to the airport.

Buses are operated by Brioni www.brioni.hr/en-us/home.aspx and connect to most major flights. The cost of a one-way ticket is 25kn.

A taxi ( www.taxipula.com/contact.html) from the bus station to the city should be around 85 kuna in the low season and much higher in the summer.
