vieste to bari train-bus connections

We are travelling from Vieste to Matera in June - taking a bus from Vieste and transferring to a train to complete the journey.

Where is the best place to transfer (Manfredonia or Foggia) ? Is the bus station close to the train station in Manfredonia? Can we buy train tickets on the train ... if our connections are tight?

take a bus from vieste to foggia (ferrovie del gargano), then a train foggia to bari (ferrovie dello stato).

from bari to matera you can use a bus or a train (ferrovie appulo lucane).

you need a different ticket for each part of the journey because they are different transport companies.

Thank you Tips4Paris -- That really helps.

If time between connections is tight, do you know if we can purchase tickets on-board the trains or buses?

Thanks again for your help.

tickets on board are often not allowed except in cases such as "no ticket shops open".

if time is really really tight you can get on board ticketless but you MUST ask to the driver or the ticket-collector while getting on, so you don't risk to get a fine.

You'll perhaps need to be more than just careful!

For the fines and very limited exemptions which apply on the FS Trenitalia services, see the sections titled "Fare corrections on-board" and "Issue of tickets and other on board operations" here:
