Rijeka – Opatija
New timetable for the TouRIst Bus

The beginning of autumn is also the beginning of the new, winter timetable of the TouRIst Bus that connects Rijeka and Opatija, enabling passengers to see the sights of this interesting area on a hop-on, hop-off basis.

The morning ride of the bus, between 9 and 12 o’clock, is aimed mainly at congress guests, various associations, pupils, students and other organised groups. The morning schedule includes 30-minute halts in Slatina (in the very heart of Opatija) and in front of the Dvorana mladosti hall in Trsat, giving the passengers the possibility to experience the most popular sights of these areas.
In the remaining two tours, in the period between noon and 4.40 p.m., the bus offers a hop on-hop off service, which means that there are no longer halts on any stations. It is important to say that in this part of the year, the TouRIst Bus does not operate on Sundays and public holidays.
The winter timetable also means a more convenient tour price: 35 kuna for adults, and 20 kuna for children. The ticket remains valid for 48 hours and can be bought on 7 locations in Rijeka: the Tourist Information Centre Rijeka, Bonavia, Jadran, Neboder and Kontinental hotels, the Croatian Youth Hostel Rijeka, and the Autotrans Tourist Agency Rijeka. Selling points in Opatija are the Tourist Information Centre Opatija, the Autotrans Tourist Agency Opatija, and the following hotels: Mozart, Milenij, 4 opatijska cvijeta, Admiral, Ambasador, Imperial, Kristal, Kvarner – Amalia and Palace.
