There are daily bus services from Dubrovnik to Ljubljana (Slovenia); Medjugorje, Mostar, and Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina); and Trieste (Italy); plus a thrice-weekly service to Frankfurt, There are regular bus routes between Dubrovnik and destinations all over mainland Croatia, with hourly buses to Split (Central Dalmatia), 14 daily to Zagreb, and four to Rijeka (Kvarner). Within the Southern Dalmatia region, there are four buses daily to Ston and three to Orebić on Peljesac Peninsula, which continue to Korčula. Regular local buses run up the coast to Trstenik, and down the coast to Cavtat (you can also catch the bus to Cavtat at the bus stop near the cable car). Timetable information is available from Dubrovnik Bus Station, near the ferry terminal in Gruž. Remember that if you're traveling between Central and Southern Dalmatia by road, you'll pass through a narrow coastal strip called Neum, which belongs to Bosnia-Herzegovina, so have your passport at hand for the border checkpoint. Most Croatian buses have a 20-minute stop here so people can jump off and shop, since many things are much cheaper in Bosnia.
