Public Transport in Kaunas

A comfortable way to travel in Kaunas is to use the public transport system. Minding the bus and trolleybus schedules available online and referring to the university’s contacts, students may use them, for instance, to take trips from the university to the dorm and vice versa.

Public transport in Kaunas uses two types of tickets: single-use paper ticket and periodic electronic tickets (e-ticket). Disposable paper tickets (costing 1,80 LTL) are valid for only one trip (the same single-trip ticket cannot be used for the second trip). After buying a single-trip ticket, you must validate it immediately upon boarding the vehicle. Be sure to save the validated ticket until the end of the trip.

At the airport, bus tickets can be purchased at the outlet R-kiosk located in the Arrivals of the
passenger terminal. Local currency Litas and bank cards are accepted for payment. If you do not
have any money in Litas, you can exchange your money at a currency exchange office of
Medicinos bankas at the Arrivals. The bank is open every day from 5:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.

If you do not have time to buy a single-trip ticket at the distribution locations, you can buy a
ticket from the driver (it would cost 2 LTL). Please buy a ticket from the driver immediately after
boarding the vehicle. Please note that for security reasons drivers do not carry cash with them, so please be prepared to pay the exact amount of money.
