Bus No. 3G goes through the centre (Lukiškės square), business centre (Konstitucijos avenue), continuing on to Fabijoniškės sleeping district. The bus number’s trailing letter “G” on a green background stands for “Greitasis” which means “Express bus”. It stops at all relevant bus stops in the centre, while skipping some stops before and after the city centre.

Bus times are available at bus stops or on the website www.stops.lt

Once you have boarded public transportation, you can purchase a one way ticket from the driver that costs €1. You need to mark the paper ticket at one of the several small red metal ticket validators found on the stands in the bus or by placing it in the yellow electronic ticket validator. If you plan to spend a longer time in Vilnius, get yourself a “Vilnius Kortelė” – an electronic ticket that costs €1,5 and can be electronically refilled. It is available at newspaper stands throughout the city and the arrivals area of Vilnius Airport.
