Kolumbus is the local transport company in the region and operates a number of services to popular attractions in the region.

Where do I buy a ticket?

Tickets can be purchased in the Kolumbus app, at the Narvesen kiosk in Haraldsgata (beside Haugesund Tourist Information), at the ticket machine at the bus stop at Bytunet, or can be bought in cash on board the bus. Children under the age of six travel free of charge, and students and senior citizens pay half price. We always recommend that you buy a ticket in advance, as it is cheaper than buying a ticket on board.

Where do I download the Kolumbus ticket app?

You can find information about how to download the Kolumbus ticket app here. If you have problems downloading the app, the staff at Haugesund Tourist Information in Haraldsgata 131 can help you.

Where do I find the right bus service and timetable?
