The transports system in Norway is quite established in the urban areas more than in the rural areas. This is normally because the rural areas have low population density compared to the urban areas. The public transport system has a large number of buses, ferries and trains. The country has an immense number of transport companies some of which specialize in long distance travel while other specialize in short distance travels.
The transport system has also integrated technology and thus introduced a transport web portal where travelers can source information regarding the departures and arrivals of buses, trains, ferries as well as plane. The web portal is www.177.no and the dedicated communication/telephone support line is 177. Tickets are usually sold in kiosks, ticket machines as well as in the stations and are usually cheaper if bought in advance than when purchased while on board.
