Cyprus has one of the highest levels of car ownership in the world and driving remains one of the most practical ways to get around on the island. The roads are generally in good condition, although some may be unpaved, congestion is light and petrol stations easily found.
Road users drive on the left-hand side of the road, but the culture is quite different from northern Europe. Drivers can be fast and aggressive, not stopping at roundabouts and other junctions, and failing to use indicators. This takes some getting used to; however, once you’ve been on the road a while, it’s not as intimidating as it may first appear!
Public transport is insufficient. Cyprus has no train services and the buses can be unreliable. Different operators run the various bus services and don’t always run on the weekends or during the evenings. In some quieter areas, the buses only run once or twice a day; They tend to be more frequent in the cities.
