Walking is a good option for getting around the city as Zagreb is compact with all the main sights in close proximity to the major hotels. Those who need to travel further afield can make use of the highly efficient tram system, which has frequent services throughout the city connecting bus and train stations and the main square, Trg Bana Josipa Jelacica. Four tram routes also operate throughout the night with each ticket providing 90 minutes of travel.
Public buses offer another viable transport alternative and are useful for airport runs. There are plenty of taxis in Zagreb too, particularly close to major hotels and the airport. Fares are negotiable and it's always best to agree on a price before setting off if the taxi is not metered. Many tourists opt to rent cars as it offers them greater freedom when it comes to exploring the outlying areas. The city is fairly easy to negotiate by car and Croatia's roads are well maintained.
