PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Vilnius trolley buses and buses start running at 5 in the morning and stop at midnight. For the timetables please visit http://www.marsrutai.lt/ or http://www.vilniustransport.lt/

Tickets: There is available E-Ticket (electronic ticket called “Vilniečio kortelė”). „Vilniečio kortelė“ can be credited with an appropriate amount of money and/or the selected public transport tickets. With a valid ticket in the e-ticket, properly activated on board of public vehicle, if necessary, it is possible to change the public transport for free and for unlimited number of journeys.

TAXI

Currently standard fare for Vilnius taxi is from 0,5 Eur to 1 Eur per kilometer. Taxi companies really often calculate and boarding fee, which is about 1-2 Eur. On weekends and holidays, especially in the evenings, taxi rates rise significantly. It is advisable to call a taxi by phone because you will also pay more if you will board a taxi which is parked on the street.

If you have any doubts about the applicable fees, just request a travel receipt from taxi driver at the end of the travel. A receipt must contain the following information: a final price for the service, price per 1 km, time, travel route, car number and full name of the driver.
