how can we get from Tirana to Struga by public transport (e.g. bus). Thanks for your help, Ledia
I bought a ticket from a travel agent in the city, and took the bus from the mud patch near the train station. It cost me about 10 euros and dropped us off on the highway a few kilometers from the centre. I think most, even all, of the buses to Struga carry on to Skopje, and Struga is a small stop. You should tell the driver you are getting off there or you might miss it. Also don't be alarmed if the bus seems to go in the opposite direction to Macedonia and heads to Durres - that seems to be normal.
If you are going to Struga to get to Ohrid, then you can get a taxi the rest of the way. It cost me 5 euros back in 2007 - they're very cheap. There was a taxi company a short walk from the bus station on the way into Struga, but you can probably flag one down.
Right , lets see..fresh Info from the ground.
There are one stop in Tirane for Bus to Tetovo/Skopje via Elbasan, Struga and Debar.one is train its going grom the side Street near the Old Mosque from Skenderbeg Sqare
You have two buses Daily going to Macedonia.
One thing is that the hairrasing Bus drive from Tirane to Elbasan is bit better, they are opened New tunel.Bus leave Tirane early morning and early afternoon. Price is €12.50
