How to move around by bus

Pin It
Bus lines reach almost every tourist destination in Sicily, and they are faster and more comfortable than trains, although a bit more expensive. There are 3 companies in Sicily, Sais, Ast and Interbus, which cover the entire territory, connecting the main towns among each other.

Local connections are also ensured by numerous smaller companies, but these ones only operate on working days. Generally the terminal station in the bigger cities is located opposite the train station or in the main squares. Timetables can be found in the company offices or at the bus stations.

Tickets can be purchased either at the company offices or directly by the driver, but the advanced purchase is always recommended if you want to be sure to find a seat.
