Buses in Norway

Every city and town in Norway has a local bus service and there is an extensive network of express coaches throughout the country.

Express and long-distance coaches

Nor-Way Bussekspress operates routes all over the country except Northern Norway, providing connections with intersecting bus routes and other forms of transport including trains and ferries. In Fjord Norway, Fjord1 operates several routes.

Norway's largest operator is Nettbuss Ekspress, a company that offers three different varieties of express coach service in much of Southern Norway, all of them withwireless Internet and air conditioning. See their coach route map here, and read more about their services here.

Express coaches in general are an underrated way of travelling in Norway, which is a pity because they offer a very extensive network of routes, for example in Fjord Norway and to rural areas. Many of the coaches connect with each other and with local services. Express coaches link all the major towns, airports and ferry terminals

Coach travel is usually a lot cheaper than travelling by plane or train, but takes longer. Most companies offer student, child, senior, and family discounts. Most companies encourage online booking in advance, and offer both discounts and guaranteed seating for those who do.

If you are travelling in a large group, you must book your ticket well in advance.

Usually there is no problem bringing bikes and skis with you, as long as you pay for their transportation.

Public buses

In the largest cities you will find bus stations and public transport information centres. Tourist information offices can also provide information about public buses.

You can buy your ticket on board, by telling the driver where you are going. One-day and weekly travel cards are available in some towns/cities, and these can be bought from the driver, kiosks and bus stations. However, in for example Oslo, it is cheaper to buy your ticket before getting on the bus.
