Tirana - Essential Information
Nend Tereza (Mother Theresa) airport, also known as Rinas Airport, lies 26 km northwest of the city in the town of Rinasi. The only public transport to and from the airport is a bus service for airport employees. A taxi is the best option for getting to and from the Airport. Be certain to fix a price before you get into the taxi.
Buses in Tirana can be confusing. It is best to check the bus schedule to various destinations in Albania once you arrive, as the schedules change frequently. There are shared buses/mini-vans called "furgons" that depart for a destination once they are filled with passengers. Because of the ongoing construction in Tirana the bus and furgon depots change regularly, so it is very important to check the locations with your hotel.
There are taxi stands scattered across the city. There is a fixed price for a ride anywhere inside Tirana.
