Mid-sized towns usually have bus systems, and most villages are served by local buses (though services aren't frequent). Bratislava and Košice have trams and trolleybuses, and High Tatras towns are linked by electric railway.
- Public transport generally operates from 5am to 10.30pm (to 11pm in Bratislava). Reduced night-bus services run in Bratislava and Košice.
- City transport tickets are good for all local buses, trams and trolleybuses. Buy tickets at ticket machines and news stands near the transport stop. Always validate your ticket in the machine on board (which usually stamps the time and date), or risk a fine.
