Kos Busses

Like all Greek island bus services, the busses are dusty uncomfortable, and have no air-conditioning that said they are however efficient and generally run to schedule. Run by KTEL the busses link most villages on the island and the airport. The service is inexpensive and popular with both visitors and locals. As normal during the peak holiday season certain busses can get very crowded, so plan your trips accordingly, KTEL appear to be quite happy however to add additional busses to a route if it would appear that the services are busy. So don't be surprised when standing at a bus stop and the bus goes straight past because it's full, it's worth waiting a couple of minutes as very often this is followed by another not shown on the timetable. Bus stops can be well 'hidden' as a guide look for a yellow post box and there is normally a bus stop nearby.

Kos Airport Busses

Busses are available from Kos Airport to Kos Town via Mastichari (a nearby village on the north coast). The bus stop is 30 meters to the left as you exit the arrivals terminal. The journey to Kos Town takes about 45 minutes. From the same bus stop, there are also services from the Airport to Kardamena and Kefalos. The timetables alter fairly often so it is worth checking before you fly if you intend to use the bus service from the airport. Details are kept up to date by KTEL here

Kos Town Busses run by D.E.A.S are separate from KTEL and don't really publish a timetable that is available directly a past timetable is available Here but please ensure that you check directly with the Municipal Bus Company Tel.: +30 22420 26726 Fax: +30 22420 49507

Kos Bus Terminus

All of the busses terminate in Kos Town, so to get from village to village, or from a village to the airport you may need to travel into Kos Town, and change busses to your destination. There are services from Kardamena and Kefalos to the airport. Tickets are purchased on the bus which would have a conductor, except for the Kos Town Terminus where the driver, may also take your money and issue a ticket.
