Transport from Olbia to Alghero

I arrive at Olbia airport 9.10pm on 28th August. We'd like to take public transport to Alghero but I think it maybe too late for a bus as not sure how late they run so we could stay one night in Olbia and travel the next day. Does any one know the best way by Bus? Is it one bus straight through or would we need to change at different towns. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi, spending the night in Olbia looks like your only option. There are trains running between Olbia and Sassari:

geasar.it/eng/airport/connection-train-route…

and from Sassari you can take a bus to Alghero

ferroviesardegna.it/orari/…20estivo.htm

Enjoy!

The link provided by sal73 to Ferroviesardegna is for their train service between Sassari & Alghero; it is not a bus service. They are a train operator that also happen to run a few buses as well but not between Sassari & Alghero.

The main bus company for Sardinia is ARST - the regional public transport operator. Confusingly there are also a few other private / local bus and coach services too. You will find a list of the key transport operators on the island here: http://www.gosardinia.com/transport.htm#bus

Thanks guys! OK another option as we arrive late into Olbia is to sleep at the airport and catch the early bus to the centre and the train etc to Alghero. Does Olbia airport close at night or will sleeping in the arrivals terminal be an option?
