Public transport in Cyprus is limited. There is no train service available. There are inter-urban public bus services connecting major towns, urban buses which run within most larger towns and tourist centres, and rural buses connecting smaller villages to their nearest towns.
Buses are not consistent in appearance, though the destination is usually displayed in the windscreen. Bus time tables and schedules are available from tourist offices or directly from the bus companies. Be aware that services stop early daily (at approximately 18:00) and there is limited bus service on weekends (some areas have no service on Sundays). Bus fare is paid directly to the bus driver; exact change is required.
