Interbus to Taormina Sunday lunchtime

Hi we will be arriving at Catania airport at 13:15 hrs this Sunday and I can see that the ticket office is closed between 11:45 am and 14:45 on Sundays. Will we be able to buy our tickets on the bus during this time?

Many thanks

When the biglietteria is closed, then you can purchase ticket son the bus, but this route can also be purchased online.

Vagabonda -Thank you for your quick reply- if we purchase them online do you know if they are valid on any bus that day as we are unsure which bus we will be able to catch. Also would we just print off the tickets?

Thanks !

Hi Chippy1,

All your queries are on the Interbus site, and translatable even if poorly! Left margin....

Hi Vagabonda

Yes thank you, hopefully we will catch the 13:45 bus but as we may just miss it I am going to take the risk and not prebook our tickets. That way we will be able to catch the 14:45 bus without losing our tickets as they cannot be transferred.

Hi Chippy1,

Not booking offers flexibility, but then also perhaps a crowded bus.

But buses are crowded, so six of one and half a dozen of the other.

You might have to wait a cycle.

FYI- We took this bus from the airport to Taormina on a Sunday in the middle of May.

Just be prepared for the following:

1) Very crowded; in fact it was standing room only after only a few stops in Catania;

2) We found it best to have our luggage (which was just carryons) on the bus with us because there were so many stops with people getting on and off that the luggage hold situation was chaotic and luggage might disappear;

3) It was extremely noisy so it was lucky we had our Bose headphones with us for the long ride;

4) There was no A/C to speak of;

5) I would recommend listening to podcasts through your headphones because it can bel very uncomfortable and boring;

6) There were no bathrooms on the bus

Prego Chippy1,

This is a public bus, and not a private transfer service.

How luxurious was the public transport to your New York airport?
