Bus Services around Lake Garda


What's peoples experiences of the bus services in and around the lake? We are planning to visit in September but would also like to use the train service from either Desenzano or Pescheria so may need to get a bus or two if we are staying elsewhere.

Thanks, Tongo

1. Re: Bus Services around Lake Garda

Hi, the bus service on the east side of the lake is more frequent than the west side.

This is the current timetable for the east side from Riva to Peschiera and onwards to Verona:


This is the current timetable for the west side from Riva to Desenzano:


There's also a bus from Verona to Brescia that runs along the south of the lake:


In my experience the buses can sometimes run behind schedule - 15-20 minutes late is not uncommon. On the other hand, the boats generally run on time.
