How To Travel Around Cyprus

In Nicosia, public transit has been completely renovated, including all new buses. Even yet, the majority of Cypriots drive. In Cyprus, there are no railroads.

By bus

There is a comprehensive network of bus lines that span the whole island of Cyprus.

Buses are more frequent on the Turkish side (and smaller). They leave from stations on the street north of the northern gate of Nicosia. Prices are comparable to those on the Greek side of Cyprus. Be aware that return tickets may not be valid on all Turkish buses.

By shared taxi

Services begin at 6 or 7 a.m. and continue every half-hour or so until 5 or 6 p.m. on the dot. You may order a cab to pick you up and drop you off wherever inside city boundaries; but, getting in or out of the city will often take longer than the trip itself! Estimate £4-6 for a cab trip on any of them, with a surcharge on Sundays and holidays. A service taxi is another name for a service vehicle.

By car

Car rental is the most convenient (but most costly) method to travel about the island. Companies usually will not hire vehicles for less than three days, but certain foreign vendors (Budget) may provide one or two day service for a premium price. Renting ahead of time may be advantageous since walk-in choices are clearly restricted to available vehicles. Cypriots drive on the left side of the road, as is customary in the United Kingdom and the British Commonwealth. Driving standards, on the other hand, are deplorable. Drivers approach their craft with equal parts aggression and ineptitude, and they see traffic regulations as just suggestions. Some major roads do not even have road markers, and drivers often honk their horns, particularly in Nicosia. Crossing the street should be done with caution, and driving on it should be done with much more caution. Highways are usually in good shape and easy to navigate, while minor roads vary considerably in quality. As in neighboring countries, rental vehicles often utilize diesel fuel, and manual transmission rentals are generally less expensive than automatic transmission rentals, although not always by a few euros.
