Detailed Map or listing of public transportation (bus, tram, etc.) Bergen, Oslo

I am tryhing to plan a few days in Bergen and Oslo. As time will be short, want to be efficient in getting around. I would like to know what the bus routes are including stops and route numbers. I am not finding information online. If you know the stop you want you can find your way but I would need a map to know. The apps do not provide you with an option see on a map where you want to go. You must know the names or numbers of the stops. Any suggestions. We can do some walking but if the weather is not providing sunshine would like a better way of getting around? Any suggestions? I am a big picture person and like having a map.

Then go to timetables and maps, then line and terminal maps, then line maps then Bergen. It is a PDF.

Thanks. This is useful (what I was asking for). I would like it with at least major street names or landmarks but can figure it out. I'm not sure it has all routes. I am interested in bus route 51 from airport but don't see it there. I am trying to get to Scandic Bergen City. Can walk from Byparken but if rainy would like to get closer. If that bus goes to the Hurtigruten terminal it would get us closer. After cruise we will be back for two days and will want to know how best to get around so these maps will be useful.

I'm hoping that @Badger will chip in here with that level of detail.

I should have a full set of pre Covid Skyss paper timetable books somewhere but would rather a local chipped in with right up to date info.

The Bergen airport website says that only the Flybussen, the tram and route 23 now serve it, so that needs to be resolved.

I am not aware that any public bus serves the Hurtigruten terminal in its new location except the Flybussen. I had to walk there from the city centre the last two times. There was a Skyss bus to the old terminal- it dropped me at the dock gate.
Fjord line ferries, who share the terminal don't suggest anything else either.

Unfortunately those are the best maps that Skyss have, so that's what you have to work with. I can understand if you are disappointed, because you're not the only one. I'm not a huge fan of those kind of maps. They are easy to read, but they don't provide as much information as one with actual streets.

I don't know how you're trying to travel, but bus 51 in Bergen does not go to the airport. It goes pretty close, but it's still a 2 km walk from the airport to its southern terminus. If you provide a bit more information we might be able to provide more answers.

For Oslo, you can find maps at https://ruter.no/reise/rutetabeller-og-linjekart/buss-i-oslo/ There is no maps with all routes, but instead they have separate maps for trams, metro, buses and ferries.

Thanks. Three of us are taking a cruise. We are arriving in Bergen the day before and staying at Scandic Bergen City. Since not all of us are fit, I am trying to get as close to the hotel as possible. We can all walk but most concerned if bad weather. We will be towing our baggage. After returning from the cruise, we will be staying another two nights and will want to see as much of Bergen as possible before we leave early in the morning for Flam. We have a half a day and one full day to see Bergen on the return. For example, a desired excursion is to Troldhaugen. On a nice day we can walk to the bus stop since then we will not have luggage in tow. On the return we will be staying at Scandic Torget to be closer to Bryggen.

Ask your hotel in Bergen for advice. They can probably tell you if the Flybussen airport bus is an option.

If you want to do it for the least expense (and least walking) then maybe get the tram/light rail from Bergen airport to the main bus station and grab a taxi from there. You would need to walk from the bus station to the front of the railway station but it's all undercover if it's raining. The bus station is behind the railway station.

We spent two weeks in Norway in March and taxis are clean, well regulated and not too expensive.

I opted for a taxi to the Bergen airport even though the airport bus stopped right by my hotel. For me, sometimes it is just worth it to pay a bit more for convenience. Others are free to disagree.

I cannot recommend Oslo taxis. We had several drivers tell us they didn’t know our destination points - the National Museum, really? (I showed a photo and google map of our destinations.). When we did find drivers, they were fine and cars were clean. One driver pointed out government building and other high points on our route. They did seem geared to service cruise ports.

Have you seen this map on the Scandic Bergen City website? Flybussen stops about a 1/3 of a mile to the east of the hotel.
