Getting around the City

Public transport

Public transport in Cyprus is limited even though a new public transport system was launched in 2010 to expand the bus network. OSEL - the Transportation Organization of Nicosia District - operates urban buses with fixed routes every half an hour, but their services stop at around 6pm. The bus services are limited on weekends.

Fares cost €1.50 per ride or €5 per day, €15 per week for unlimited journeys within a district. For more information visit the OSEL website.

There are several buses from down town to the University of Nicosia.  Most stop at 28 Oktovriou Avenue (which is 200-300 metres from the University).  The fastest bus from down town - from "Solomou Square" (where all the buses start from Nicosia) is Bus No. 123.

There are no trams or underground services in Cyprus.
