About Bus Station Makarska
How to get to the bus station?
Makarska bus station is situated in the center of the city and it is very easy to reach it on foot. Namely, it is located one kilometer from the coast, at the crossroads of Matija Gubec and dr. Mate Ujevic. In case you need the correct address it is: Street Ante Starcevica 30.
If you are late you always have the option of ordering a taxi, but it could cost you a lot for such a short distance. On average it is 6.5-10.5 EUR/50-80 HRK for a couple of kilometers. Bus station Makarska is just a 5-minute walk from the ferry port connecting Makarska and Sumartin on the island of Brac, which is certainly a mitigating circumstance if you use a combined type of transport.

The bus station Makarska is open type and it is not difficult for you to find the bus you need. The counters have standard working hours. Buses might be late around 10 to 15 minutes, and it happens more often during the summer months. Don`t panic. It will be there in a few minutes.
In case you have a lot of time before the time of your travel you can leave your luggage and take a walk. Just ask the person at the information counter. Price is approx. 1.5 EUR/10 kn per hour.
Toilet within the station is charged 0.5 EUR/2-3 HRK, but space is quite old and smells on chlorine. As an alternative you can use a nearby cafe bar. If you have time, we strongly recommend a visit. Order yourself a coffee. Relax and enjoy your time.
There is a parking lot on your way to the station where you can always find a taxi that will take you to the desired location. It costs around 2.5-4 EUR/20-30 kn per km, which is still worth it, especially if you have a lot of luggage.
Also, there is a kiosk where you can buy daily newspapers, snacks and refreshments, and it works whole night. Good news? We know, we know. :)
If you need a rent-a-car service you are unlikely to find any of the companies at the bus station. However, in case you want to visit Medjugorje, Mostar or Dubrovnik, find some tourist agencies and ask there for help. Furthermore, feel free to ask for more detailed information about the facilities at the bus station, then ask about: timetable, discounts on tickets, actions, etc.
