Amalfi Coast SITA Bus Pass

We are going to spend a week in the Amalfi Coast in August. Is there a bus pass for the SITA busses which operate the coast? Also, where do we buy tickets for the bus?

3-day ticket = 16 Euros. Purchase at tobacconists, newsstands and some bars/cafes, as well as in the Circumvesuviana train station in Sorrento, or at the travel agency inside the Salerno train station.

Thank you for the reply. I want also to ask if these bus tickets should be validated somewhere before entering the bus (like the regional train tickets)?

Yes. You must validate the ticket once (and only once) upon boarding the very first bus. They expire at midnight of the third day (e.g. validate on Monday, good until 23:59 on Wednesday).

For the sake of completeness, there is also a 24-hr SITA unlimited use ticket for the Amalfi Coast (from Sorrento to Salerno), which costs 6.80 Euros. Once validated on the first bus, it expires 24 hours later. In practice, this allows you to spread bus travel between two days (e.g. from 9:00 a.m. to 8:59 a.m. the next day), which is a really good deal.

Both the 3-day and the 24-hr unlimited use bus pass are great values for bus travel along the Amalfi Coast.

A ticket valid for 45 minutes costs 2.20 Euros. A ticket valid for 90 minutes costs 3.40 Euros.

Ferry boats are MUCH more expensive, although sometimes a good value because the buses are so terribly crowded, expecially between Sorrento and Positano/Amalfi. The boats operate from April 1 through October 31. Ferry service is subject to delays and cancellations due to bad weather.

The SITA buses operate year-round, usually on an hourly interval. Bus travel is subject to delays due to traffic jams, road accidents and partial road closures.

See tables 5070, 5120, 5110 and 5020 (Amalfi/Naples requires a separate ticket which costs 4.10 Euros)

We did a day trip to Ravello which involved travelling to Amalfi and then transferring to another SITA bus to climb up to Ravello. We got the 24hr hop on hop off ticket for 6.80 euros. There is a booth to buy the ticket outside the Circumvesuvio station in Sorrento. Once you board the bus you validate the ticket in the machine on the bus. Be warned, the timetable is pretty flexible and the buses get very busy. Be prepared to arrive early and wait in a queue! There is a timetable at the info points in the town. When all the seats on the bus are full, it is the norm for many people to stand. It's a 2hour journey to Amalfi, with spectacular scenery and some hairy bends and that is along time to be gripping onto a handrail! By the time we reached Amalfi we had people sitting in the stairwell! At Amalfi we had equally as squashed journey bus journey (only 20mins) to Ravello which has beautiful views. Despite all this the Amalfi coast is breathtaking . If you can get a seat sit on the coast side! There is another bus to Amalfi which is more comfortable - the City Sightseeing bus (like a red London bus). It goes from the station in Sorrento to Positano then to Amalfi. The ones we saw were never full. It is more expensive - 8 euros each way. Pick up a time table at the SITA booth at the station and there are also staff waiting there to help you.

Do yourself a favor and buy a hop on hop off ticket from city sightseeing.They can be bought from the girls in red uniforms or at the same stand as the tickets for the regular bus,in front of the station.

These busses stop at the same spot as the Sita bus,but they are not so overcrowded ,because you pay a litte more 8 euro one way to Amalfi,you can get off in Positano and get on again later to Amalfi.You get free earphones and get a lot of nice information on the way.Get a seat on the right side of the bus for a spectacular few.

For the regular bus you have to get in line at least one hour before departure or you get no seat,even at the end of may.
