Matera bus/FaL station construction has started.

They started work on the new FaL/bus station in Matera which also had a large parking area on Viale Aldo Moro. This route into Matera on exit 2 from the ss7 is now blocked before you get to the Sassi area. Expected completion is May 2019 - speriamo!

Update that they are closing the bus terminal at Matera Centrale starting 18 July due to road work. If you are taking a bus that uses this as a destination be aware they will be using the bus stops on Via Europe - a couple blocks farther awya from the sassi.

I think Matera is UNESCO City of Culture for 2019 or 2020.

A very fascinating place indeed.

When you say "That is Correct", were you talking to me?

I wanted to know the exact GPS location of the stop now?

and if this is accurate? https://goo.gl/maps/2sS6HkwWs5n

The buses to Bari aren't often and I don't want to miss the bus because I am waiting in the wrong place.

My ryan air flight arrived with just enough time (15min) for me to catch the bus that went directly to Matera. It dropped in a parking lot just north east of the station. It seems like many buses were dropping there. GPS: 40.667177N, 16.601980E

I'm lucky I caught the bus. Lucky since the train line is under construction and replaced with several buses. It saved me the metro ride to the train station, then the bus connection to a train to another bus connection.
