We suggest using 4 options:

By Public Transport

There is a direct bus line from Vilnius city to Vilnius Airport. The price of a single ticket (when purchasing in the bus) – 1 EUR.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic it is not possible to buy tickets from the driver anymore.

We really recommend buying tickets for public transport on your phone! If you have data, you can download Trafi App (maybe you even have it as it is used in some other cities as well) to buy tickets on your phone (0.65 EUR for 30 min ride or 0.90 EUR for 60 min ride). In this case you just need your phone and your card. Choose the type of ticket best for you, buy it and do not forget to ACTIVATE it once you get on the bus. In case your phone dies, do not be worried. If control checks you, they have chargers, so you can show you really have a ticket. 30 min ticket should be enough to get from Vilnius airport to city center.

Another app you can download for public transport tickets is official Vilnius city app m.Ticket, however the last time we checked it was only in Lithuanian.

If you plan to use public transport more than once while staying in Vilnius and you have no data on your phone, consider buying a “Vilnius card” (“Vilniečio kortelė”). The card costs 1.5 EUR. With this card a 30 min ticket costs 0.64 EUR, a 60 min ticket costs 0.93 EUR. It is also possible to buy 1 day, 3 days, 10 days or 30 days tickets. You can buy the card and put money in it or tickets at “Narvesen” kiosk at the airport (Once in the city center, “Vilniečio kortelę” can also be purchased in other “Narvesen” kiosks, as well as “Lietuvos spauda”, “Spauda” kiosks, post offices and “Maxima” supermarkets. You can look at the map to find the location closest to you). Once you get on the bus, look for a yellow box. You should touch it with your “Vilniečio kortelė” and choose which ticket you want to activate. If you put a day ticket, you should just touch the yellow box and wait until “beep” sound. It means, your day ticket was activated and will be valid for the next 24 hours. If you touch it again, you will see until when the ticket is valid. If you plan to say in Vilnius for a longer time, this card is quite useful for day tickets if you do not prefer to use apps on your phone, but otherwise, consider downloading the apps.

By Taxi

No need to call for a taxi in advance or ask friends for help – Vilnius Airport approved taxi cabs are cheap, convenient and comfortable.

Approximate rates:

  • from Airport to Department of Biomechanical engineering about 10 EUR.
  • from Airport to Crown Plaza Vilnius hotel about 15 EUR.

We usually call a taxi by phone or use an application (Bolt, Uber, etc.) (airport’s address is Rodūnios kl. 10A, Vilnius 02189, Lietuva). To reach the city center from Vilnius airport locals usually pay 5 – 6 EUR. However, if you are a foreigner, taxi drivers often ask for more. It’s always a good idea to agree on price before getting on the car. Don’t pay more than 10 EUR!

We would recommend using Bolt, Uber or eTaksi apps. If you book a ride via their app, you will see the price in advance. Uber and Bolt have a designated pick-up area at one of the parking lots that you will be able to see on your apps. 

If you call a taxi yourself, you should wait for it just outside “Departures” (not “Arrivals”!). If you arrive in Vilnius in day time, you can also ask the tourist information center to call you a cab.
