Buses and minibuses operate regularly from 6.00 to 23.00. You can buy tickets for buses from newsstands or from the driver. Make sure you either have a valid ticket before getting on public transport, or buy one from the driver immediately after entering. If you need to buy a ticket, enter from the front door; tickets are only sold at stops, not while driving. Note that tickets bought from the driver are more expensive than from a newsstand. Punch your ticket right after getting on at one of the machines located throughout the bus. Passengers travelling with false tickets, without tickets or without proof of discount eligibility will be fined.
