Best way to get from Venice to Rijeka

Hello guys, I want to go from Venice in Italy to Rijeka. As a way of transportation I will use either bus or a train. Where can I get all the needed information (prices, times, etc.)? You can also give me some other recommendations and ideas. :D

Train from Venice to Trieste and bus from Trieste to Rijeka worked best for us.

It also depends on time of year. Next time I would try ferry to Istria, if ferry timetable suited, and bus from there to Rijeka.

I would go by train to Venice and bus to Rijeka. The catamarans from Venice to Istria are a lot more expensive and will not save any time if you are going to Rijeka.

I would only use the ferry for the scenery along the way, not to save money or time.

Book the train on www.trenitalia.com in advance. Buy your bus ticket at Trieste bus station when you arrive, www.autostazionetrieste.it

I know this is an old thread, but I was looking for this information, so I thought I would post an updated. This site is great the find bus lines between Croatia and Italy -- https://getbybus.com/en/

I was having trouble with other Croatia bus sites finding a route from Rijeka, Croatia to Trieste, Italy, but this site would search for the stops along certain routes rather than looking for beginning and end stops.
