Tickets on bus from Trapani Birgi Airport to Agrigento

I'm interested in connection from Trapani Birgi Airport to Agrigento as stated in News box on AutoLinee Lumia site:

http://www.autolineelumia.it

and as can be seen on their timetable:

http://www.autolineelumia.it/orari.php?staz_p=Trapani+Birgi+Aeroporto&staz_a=AGRIGENTO#ricerca (and back).

There is a note that the tickets can be bought at TERRAVISION box - located at the airport, as I understand.

Unfortunately, on http://www.terravision.eu/ site, no connection between Trapani and Agrigento can be chosen. There are only connections from Trapani to Palermo.

I've sent a mail to info@autolineelumia.it twice, but with no reply.

In other place, I've found that tickets from Trapani City can be bought at Egatour Viaggi; could you verify whether I could buy or reserve tickets there from Trapani Birgi as well?

I plan to spend holidays in Sicily with my wife and granddaughter near Agrigento on a week in the end of July and having tickets reserved earlier is a must for us.

Could you please inform me where I can book my tickets in advance.

Regards - Krzysztof

I have just contacted Lumia and Egatour Viaggi directly on your behalf.

It is not possible to purchase these bus tickets on the internet in advance of your arrival.

You would purchase the bus tickets at the biglietteria on arrival at the airport (€11,90), and it is also possible to purchase these tickets on the bus from the driver.

Egatour Viaggi does not sell these tickets.

Hi, Vagabonda.

Thank you for fast and exact response.

It's a pity that there is no possibility to buy tickets in advance.

Our plane arrives at 14:50 and I planned to catch the last bus on 17:30 (Monday 21 of July), and in case it could be full, it would be a disaster to our plans.

Can you estimate what are chances to get free places on this line?

Would it be possible to buy at least return tickets in advance when on place in Trapani Birgi or Agrigento?

Do you advice to buy instead tickets via Palermo, according to your response at

tripadvisor.com/…pst_adm_30391964

where tickets can be bought in advance?

All the best for you,

Krzysztof

Prego Krzysztof F,

Salve Krzysztof F,

Buses don't 'typically' fill.

If your plane were delayed, and you missed the direct Lumia bus to Agrigento, then the direct Salemi bus from Birgi to Palermo is your back-up plan.

http://autoservizisalemi.it/

autoservizisalemi.it/tratte/…

Then take the Cuffaro bus or the train onward from Palermo to Agrigento.

cuffaro.info/orari-e-partenze-cuffaro-autose…

www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp…

You can't purchase your return ticket from Agrigento to Birgi for a week later on arrival at Birgi. Purchase your return tickets in Agrigento for Birgi.

Best regards,

Vagabonda

Just in case, where are bus stops in Palermo arriving from Trapani via Salemi and departing from Palermo to Agrigento via Cuffaro? Are they far from each other and how they can be communicated?

Wait for the download, and find all the Salemi stops in Palermo, but you would want the last stop at the train station, Piazza Cairoli.

autoservizisalemi.it/tratte/…

The bus for Agrigento departs from Via Paolo Balsamo also near the station.

Click on these maps to enlarge and see both locations.
