Trieste is the best jumping off point for buses to Pula as there are up to four daily that make the 3 3/4hour run. The timetables are geared to Pula residents who run up to Trieste to shop or work, not for Trieste residents who vacation in Pula.There's also a bus from Padua that stops in Venice and Trieste before heading to Pula.
Most domestic and international buses can now be booked online at the Autotrans website. In the summer season it is highly advisable to get your ticket and seat assignment as soon as possible. See more tips about Croatia buses.
There are regular daily buses from Ljubljana and Koper to Pula and other Istrian destinations. See more about buses from Slovenia.
Buses are frequent to Rovinj (40 minutes), Rijeka (2 1/2 hours), Split (10 hours) and there is one daily to and from Dubrovnik (15 hours; see the schedule at buses from Dubrovnik).
