Split has a very good public transport system which is run by the company Promet Split. The center itself is very well connected with the outer parts of the city. Local public bus transportation is in any case the cheapest mode of transport.
A ticket for local city buses can be purchased directly from the driver or at most kiosks in Split (most kiosks of Tisak and Slobodna Dalmacija). If you buy a ticket at the kiosk, you have to show it to the driver who will annul it with a stamp. In its network, Promet Split has many modern, air-conditioned buses, but bear in mind that there are also very old buses which are not very pleasant to drive in. You can see route map of the city bus lines here:
