Albania Bus Timetables 2019 for Popular Routes

Albania Bus Timetables 2019 for Popular Routes

Travelling around Albania can be a little tricky.  If you are used to rigid timetables and perfectly planned bus rides, then travelling through Albania may give you a reality check.  The truth is that Albanian bus timetables are a little bit of a pain in the arse but once you understand how they work, it’s easy!

For this season (2019) I myself have gathered (and from other travellers around Albania) a list of routes with the time that they are (supposed) to leave the destination.  Hopefully, this can give you a better idea on how to plan your holiday around Albania.

Albania’s timetables can change with a flick of the wrist so always double-check the night before that this is the correct time.  The best way to confirm that is to get your ticket the night before or simply ask a local or your accommodation supplier to confirm it for you. People in Albania are really friendly and are always there to help you if need be!

*If you know of any timetables that have changed please let me know by commenting below.  I want to keep this guide up to date as possible.  All times listed below were researched by me visiting the bus station as well as other travellers who have already travelled through Albania in 2019.

    Hi Anita and thanks for all the useful info on your site! I am in Saranda at the moment and asked at Tourist Info on the seafront promenade today about buses to Vlora. Apart from the 11:30 and 14:30 you mention, they also told me there was one at 5:30 in the morning. Not that we’ll be catching that 😀
