Some of the bus companies that operate all throughout Croatia include CroatiaBus, Autotrans Rijeka, Autobusni promet Varazdin, Contus, and Libertas Dubrovnik, to name a few.

A lot of the ferry lines within Croatia are suited for commuter travel rather than tourist travel. The ferries are divided into two types of boats, such as the car ferries, and foot ferries; which are larger boats for vehicle and passenger transport, and faster ferries, also known as catamarans, or passenger ferries, respectively.
