For the most convenient access to public transport, you can obtain a Vilnian Card (“Vilniečio kortelė”) – a prepaid travel card that can be used on all public transport. These can be bought at supermarkets and newsstands.
Individual tickets can also be bought for €1 and are valid for an hour. 30-minute tickets are offered at some locations for €0.50.
CycloCity Vilnius Cards are also available at Vilnius Tourism Information Centres (for a list of Centre addresses, click here). CycloCity bikes are available during the summer months of June-August.
For more information about how get to and from Vilnius (by plane, train or bus), see this page.
I’ve gained four hours of free time per day since moving to Vilnius – there are no traffic jams at all here and, if I want, I can pop home in the middle of the workday for lunch or to have a swim.
Parking in the city
Drivers must pay for street parking in the majority of the central area of Vilnius (except for residents of this area). Street parking is divided into separate zones (blue, red, yellow, green) with prices varying depending on how central parking spots are. These zones are marked by signs and can be paid using the dedicated m.Parking app, by SMS, or with coins or a bank card at one of the nearby parking meters.
