Need help with transport from Trieste to Pula
I am unable to locate train or bus schedules for this route. What I've found on the die bahn site only shows inter-Italy schedules from Trieste. Will need to get to Pula, and then back, sometime mid-March. Can anyone help?

There definitely is a bus. Goes from the main bus station next to the train station in Trieste. Takes about 3 hours. When I did it 3 years ago there were 3 a day. Don't know where you'll find the schedule though, I just turned up and got on.

Thanks, gertie. But the Timetable page is in Italian, and I couldn't get anywhere with it...

Holly, did you click on the "inglese" up at the top of the screen?

I'm interested in the bus or train timetable too.

Thanks for the website but even if you have Inglese selected, when you click on Timetable, it goes back to Italian.

One thought is to translate it online using Babelfish. Any other ideas?

And two questions for Gertie - is the journey on straight multi-laned freeway or curvy narrow roads (I get bad motion sickness)? And do they make any pitstops along the way?

Thanks for your help

This should do it for you:
There are buses at 9.00, 14.00. 14.30, 16.15, 18.00 and 19.30. They stop or don't stop at various places.
Re the motion sickness, I too suffer. I always try to sit as near to the front as possible As I remember the roads are mainly straight highways with very little twisting and turning.
The bus I was on stopped just once in the 3 hours. There was time to get off, go to the loo, get a coffee.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 01:05 AM.
