In contrast to the trains, buses go all over Serbia and into adjacent countries. The main bus station is adjacent to the train station. Most buses go out of the main terminal though some buses to destinations that are not so far out of Belgrade use the two smaller terminals across the street to the north. Pay for your ticket in the appropriate terminal and you will also get a seat reservation ? important for long bus journeys. The reservation system worked fine out from Belgrade, but not so good coming back. You will also need to buy a token that you use to gain entry onto the bus platforms themselves.

While in Serbia I took two overnight buses and two medium range buses. The overnight buses were nowhere near as comfortable as Mexican overnight buses which I have ridden and the ride between Belgrade and Kotor was longer than the time it took me to fly from the West Coast of the US to Istanbul ? including two layovers en route. Traffic was the main problem, especially along the Montenegrin coast near Budva where everything is a bit of a chaotic mess. It also takes awhile to get across the Serbo-Montenegrin border, maybe the bus schedules were drawn up before the two countries split and haven?t been revised? As non-luxurious as the bus ride had been, I shudder to think what the train journey to Podgorica would have been like in lieu of the locals negative comments ? ?Do not take the train!?
