Transportation to Tirana City Center from Airport

Tirana, giving a grasp of Ottoman culture to its visitors by the mosque and Turkish bath from the 17th century, is the capital of Albania. Tirana has a small surface area, and a low population ratio. Passengers wanting to visit Tirana use the transportation to the city from Tirana International Airport.

The transportation service provided by public transport in Tirana is very weak. As of 2013, the train line that runs along the coastline of the city has been closed. There is no public transport means except for the bus. Train services are only used for transportation to neighboring cities.

A tourist information office is located in the Rruga Ded Gjo Luli district, north of Skanderbeg Square, known as the city center of Tirana, to make it easier for visitors to use public transport within the city. We recommend that you visit this office. Office staff speaks English, telling you in detail what you need to do through the maps to make your transportation easier. If you do not want to use public transport, it would ease your trip to take a taxi or rent a car.  

Other than that, you can also explore the city center on foot. However, as there is often construction going on in the city square, your journey can be halved. In some parts of the city bicycle rental points are located. With the bike you can rent from here you can have a more enjoyable trip.

Options for public transport from Tirana International Airport to the city are quite limited. It will be much easier to get to your destination by renting a car or taking a taxi.


There are buses named Rinas Express which takes you to the Rruga Durres area, a few minutes' walk from Skanderbeg Square. After passing through the exit gates of the airport, you can follow the car park area and find the bus departure point behind the taxi stops. These buses operate between 6 am and 6 pm, with hourly intervals. Moreover, buses are the only means of public transport in the city. The times of departure change frequently, so it is worth checking before you take the bus. Apart from Rinas Express, there is no other bus departing from the airport. So if you are thinking of going to another part of the city, you have to use other bus lines passing through the city center.


Train lines that no longer serve in urban transport are used only for intercity transport, although limited. Using these lines you can travel to Durres, Shkodra, Elbasan Vlore and Librazhd.


It is possible to easily find a taxi from the taxi stop right outside the airport. In addition, there are two taxi stops serving the city transport: MerrTaxi, SpeedTaxi. For our passengers who want to use taxi, we recommend these two. Pirate taxis are often found in the city, but their fees may be higher than the normal taxis. You can come across those who do not use taximeters among these pirate taxis. We recommend you to be careful in this regard for a more comfortable transport.

Car Rental

Car rental is a less preferred alternative to taking a taxi. There are many vehicles in many parts of the city. It is therefore possible to have difficulty parking your vehicle. Also, the asphalt is not well laid out on the road. Driving can also be very challenging because traffic signs are not very well prepared.
