Northeastern Albania

The best way to get around is by bus, or van furgon. Buses that go from Tirana to Durres for example, cost 100 Lek, about $1 US. Inner city buses currently cost 30 Lek a trip. Some buses that leave Skanderberg Square are free, the end destination being the mall advertised on the side of the bus. Sometimes you can grab a mall bus, and get out before the mall somewhere, free ride! Furgon's cost a little more, from 200 Lek and up, if you are heading out of a major town. These are used for faster transport, and the more windy mountain roads that cannot accommodate a large bus. You can get almost anywhere by bus, with totally unmarked stations all over the Square area.
