KAUNAS CITY PUBLIC TRANSPORT INFORMATION
Kaunas public transport: buses, trolleybuses and minibuses. Trolleybuses and buses run from 4.30 a.m. until 10.30 p.m.
Payments for Kaunas city public transport are made with the help of non-contact electronic ticket (CARD) system. You may transfer different sums of money from your e-purse onto the CARD and/or pay for certain kinds of e-ticket (of 3, 7, 30 and 92 days) periodically. You may use the CARD on the buses, in the places marked by the special sign “Kauno Viešasis Transportas” (KVT) (Kaunas Public Transport). You must always have your card when getting on the means of transport.
Useful information: if you do not have an e-card with payment for e-ticket, you may buy a single-use ticket from the driver. Please buy the single-use ticket from the driver immediately after getting on the means of transport. Please note that drivers do not have cash due to safety issues; thus, be prepared to pay the exact sum of money for the ticket (0.8 EUR). The tickets purchased from the driver do not have to be validated by a ticket puncher.
Passengers must get on the bus through the front door and validate e-tickets or buy a single-use ticket from the driver. If there is a possibility, you should get off the bus through the back/middle door.

Passengers, paying for the trip by single-use electronic tickets, during 30 minutes from the first card check at vehicle can change the vehicle – take a route taxi, a bus or a trolleybus.

It is great to return to Kaunas and to visit your City Hall again. Since my visit in 1979 Kaunas and Lithuania have achieved freedom and a new mean of hope. Thank you and best wishes
