Tuzla Transportation: 4 reviews and 0 photos

The best way to get to Tuzla is by car or by bus. You can fly into Sarajevo and drive for about 2 1/2 - 3 hours, but I have to warn you, Bosnian mountains are not for the faint of heart, and this road is full of curves. You can also take a bus from Sarajevo, and the fare will cost you around 10 Bosnian marks (approximatly $4-5). There is a small airport in Tuzla, but to fly into this airport will cost you more than flying to Sarajevo. Another way to get to Tuzla is to fly into Zagreb and drive for about 4 hours, but the road is much better. The train system in Bosnia has been completely destroyed during the war, so don't count on it
The best way to get around Tuzla is by bus that costs 1 mark or by taking a cab that actually costs the same. FYI, if you want to pay only a mark for the cab, it will not take you wherever you want but it goes basically on bus routes and stops at bus stops. In order to actually be taken to your doorstep, you will have to pay a few more marks (actually 5 marks and don't let them charge you more). Tuzla as a city is long but narrow, and a lot of it is in the steep hills. The bus transportation goes in the valley mostly. You can always rent a car and drive, but seriously, if you plan staying in the city only, it's not worth it, since parking is scarce.
If you choose bus and are staying for longer than a month, definitely buy a monthly pass, it will save you money. Also, you can get a schedule of all buses at the kiosques at the bus stations for 1 mark.
