Taxi prices to the more popular resorts are published by the Taxi companies, these are set early in the year and apply to cars that are flagged down or picked up at a rank.

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.
