public transport to borobudur

Please help. Is there any public bus transport to borobudur. Is the bus airconditioned and is it safe for tourists to travel by this form of transport?

Appreciate any advice.

There are a few tips about bus service to Borobudur on VirtualTourist, see e.g. the one by ukirsari:

virtualtourist.com/travel/Asia/Indonesia/Cen…

Among the buses to Magelang there may be some airconditioned ones (PATAS bus which makes few stops), but most are not. And I think for the leg fromMagelang to Borobudur there won't be any airconditioned bus.

The bus service is safe enough - but may not be very comfortable. Buses are often crowded and not very clean.

Hi

We took the bone shaker bus from Jogja to Borobudur,as advised,not comfortable,dusty,very small seat and stop at any bus stop and any passenger that waved down the bus to pick up passenger.

No aircon inside the bus.

But fare was very Cheap

Cheers
