Traveling by bus
One of problems that I find here is non existing bus related information for majority of places and bus companies online.
Note, balkanviator is nice project but not perfect. I find it useful its base of bus companies. For timetable is partially correct and most of it is non exists. Apparently that some bus companies recognized its popularity and collaborate with them. Most information I looking for are partially and nonexistent. I hope that will changes especially because we all need those information and especially tourist related on it. So, I had situation that I reply on forum and give information about local and international bus for example from Doboj (BiH) to Belgrade (SRB). Try it in that site and look what you can find!
Actually, there is four regular bus lines from Doboj (BiH) to Belgrade (SRB).
Another example, Istočno Sarajevo (bus station Lukavica) had several direct lines to Belgrade (SRB) and you can find it here - http://www.centrotrans-ad.com/English.aspx
So to summarize - there no any complete bus related online base on Balkan who can give you all information you need.
Note - I support any effort to help potential visitors - tourists and independent travelers and my activity here on VT is also my contribution to it! I just find sad when realized that some people change it itinerary because don't know relevant information.
Unique Suggestions: It i better to use for online search correct name of place (with characteristic symbols) and type "turizam" or "autobuska stanica". For touristic destination like you ask there no any problem to find information online. Then, once you there you can see it in person.
Problem is that you actually first can find local bus company and find information. This is moment where balkanviator can help you but still this is not perfect answer. There is so many local bus companies around Balkans that is so hard to have all information on one place. I hope that this will change in future. And base is formed on base of names of company not on its seats and it can be hard to find it relevant information.
In facebook you can find much better information but sadly even then you cannot solve all your bus related problems.
Often you will need any kind translator to find real local names of places and translate information you get.
Fun Alternatives: Do your homework! You don't need just give up after one view of first site that come up.
What about you still come in your destination?! Search first big near city! Local bus lines is operated within municipality border. That is tricky to find, I agree!
Then, go to touristic information if there any and local bus station and ask in person!
Find first bigger place and come! In my pages you can find it some information under local custom section about status of those places. Transportation section I find also important. You can find some information there. I didn't cover all possible places and all possible information!
What about give personal contribution to this topic and put all information you find it in your own VT page!? It is fun and education task!Related to:

Don't drive tanks when NATO comes!
It is a real bad idea to be in a Russian made tank when NATO aircraft are looking for targets. Even though this was not a target rich environment, the Air Forces of NATO whalloped anything they could spot.Related to:
