The great thing about the city is how you can really get everywhere on foot! That being true, if you’re not living in the immediate downtown or need to get out to the Jarun Lake or Maksimir Parks or just want to check out the tram system you might want to acquire a student tram pass. These passes are issued at any of the 13 Zagreb municipal transit system, Zagrebački električni tramvaj (ZET) and offices. The best bargain is with monthly or yearly pass. However if you are not ready for such a commitment you can get single or 24-hour tickets at a newsagent. In any case make sure you are covered because ZET controllers issue unpleasantly steep fines to riders without valid tickets.
There are three ways of public transportation in the City of Zageb – trams, buses and city railway. Zagreb Electric Tram (ZET, www.zet.hr) together with Croatian railway (www.hz-net.hr) conduct the public transport in Zagreb.
