Getting Around Cyprus by Bus
There is a comprehensive network of bus routes all over Cyprus. Use Cyprus By Bus to plan your journey. On the Turkish side, buses are more frequent (and smaller). In Nicosia, they depart from stops at the street north of the northern gate.
Taxis in Cyprus
Taxis are widely available however it will be difficult to find one with a car seat or booster seat without pre booking. Cyprus Airport Taxi Transfers offer taxi services with car seats and booster seats if you are not bringing your seat with you from home.
Driving in Cyprus
Car hire is the easiest (but the most expensive) way to get around the island. Cypriots drive on the left side of the road, however, driving standards are poor. Take care when crossing the roads, and even greater care when driving on them.
Travelling between the North and South
Crossing the green line (the line between Turkish and Greek Cyprus) is very simple. The “visa form” to be completed is very basic and requires only the name, the nationality and the passport number to be entered and the form stamped. The whole procedure should take no more than three minutes. Upon return, it is stamped again. For EU citizens, the visa is valid for 3 months and allows you to enter and leave as often as you like. Nicosia is well worth visiting. The best shops and restaurants are in the southern part of Nicosia but the most historic sights are in northern Nicosia. The contrast between the two halves of the city is an experience in itself.
