We arrived by bus from Klaipeda. The bus station is quite busy and also features a left luggage. Please bear in mind that the left luggage is closed for a long lunch break. I couldn’t believe it as we had checked out of the accomodation and depended on it for our excursion to the Hill of Crosses and the consequently for the our time schedule for onward travel. I made a big fuss and got the guy who was hidden behind the shutters to answer my knock and take our luggage. He was annoyed but when we picked it up again, I gave him a small packet of Gummi bears which lifted his spirits.The information window can give you a timetable for the busses to the turn off by the Hill of Crosses which is very handy.

Frequent buses connect Siauliai with other cities in Lithuania and Eastern Europe.
I arrived in Siauliai on a modern air conditioned coach from Vilnius, a journey which took 4 hours and cost 32 Lt (approx 6 GBP / 9 Euros).
I left Siauliai on an equally modern coach to go to Riga (Latvia). This was a 3 hour journey and cost 19.5 Lt (approx 4 GBP / 6 Euros). The coach had commenced its journey in Kaliningrad (Russia).
As well as the luxurious coaches that connect Siauliai with the major cities in the region there are also smaller minibuses that connect the town with other towns and villages in Lithuania.
The small bus station is located a 10 minute walk from the city centre and has only a tiny terminal. The terminal contains a ticket office and a small shop (but no ATM) and can comfortably accommodate no more than 10 to 15 passengers at any one time (in spite of which, there always seemed to be double this number crammed in there!).
Despite having a ticket office, we were told to pay the conductor once we boarded the bus rather than purchase a ticket in advance.
Toilets can be found in portakabins outside the front of the terminal.
Information correct as at October/November 2005.

Located about a 10 minutes walk on the outskirts of Siauliai is the small railway station, comprising of a small waiting area complete with ticket office and shop. To the left hand side of the small station building is a little building where there is a a handy left luggage facility for anyone wanted to take in the city for a few hours while waiting for a train. It costs about €1, I think, for 2 hours.
From the Station there are regular train to Vilnius.
Check out the Lithuanian Railways website for the latest train timetables and info.

12km north from Siauliai, near the highway Siauliai-Ryga. 'Buses leave regularly from the main bus station, platform N°2. Get off at the large sign marked Kryziu Kalnas and walk a further 2km.' The settlement is called 'Meskuciai'.
If you're going by taxi - bargain and don't overpay!

Around the city of Siauliai there are local buses. There was no need for us to take them as we walked everywhere and it would have been too complicated lacking knowledge of the Lithuanian language.
