It is not possible to pre-purchase a bus ticket online. Drivers accept EUR currency and only cash. Passengers buy their ticket on board the bus when boarding. KTEL doesn’t assign seat numbers. Hence travelers take any available seat on the bus (if any).
Are there any alternative options?
Local taxis are waiting outside the arrival hall. However, they work on ‘first come first serve’ basis. Also there is only a limited number of taxis in the island. Shared minibuses are also an extra option. Travelers can pre-book a vehicle before their arrival to ensure that someone will be waiting for them. In terms of comfort there is no comparison between the Public Bus and the taxi services. For more info please click here.
