... br> Furgon departed not full at 5:36. It was a 28-minute ride downhill to the main highway in Fushe Kruja, where we immediately transferred to a small furgon to Tirana at 6:04, departing at 6:05. This is a small van with only six passengers. We traveled nonstop to Tirana, arriving at 6:34. Hailed a taxi to our hotel. Driver indicated he didn’t have a meter and asked for 500 leke ($4.72).
