Moving on the line bus through Santorini

El Local bus (remember that it is green) covers most of the routes on the island, going to the different beaches y poblaciones. Keep in mind that many of the public buses are similar to tour buses, so you have to be careful not to make the mistake of missing the bus.

It is very important to remember that the schedules and frequencies of buses change often and without notice, hence we are all the time indicating that it is not very reliable.
