bus routes and bus timetables - help please!!

We are staying Naxos near Gylfada beach on the south west coast from 15th September to the 23rd September. We are hiring a car for the first few days but plan to get the bus for the rest. We are near Alyko and only really need to get the bus from there up to Mikri Vigla for food shopping or Naxos town. Can anyone tell me where I can find an up to date timetable (in English) online or otherwise for buses that run on this route, and if they are still running a normal timetable despite it being September?

Many thanks

Unless some kind person who is on Naxos can post the timetable it is probably best to wiat until you arrive on the island to get the latest timetable. The timetables at this time of year change frequently with the new timetable only available the day before it commences.

The bus times can be found here:

Since this route has very few buses, it's unlikely to change like the more popular routes.

The routes normally are changed in mid September.

The route for Pyrgaki, Alyko and Mikri Vigla may be reduced to a couple a day - but check when you are there. Also beware that on Naxos buses you will have to buy tickets before you enter the bus. You can buy several for your need in the K-Tel office in Naxos port when arriving, where you also will get the updates on the schedules.

Last year the time-table showed 5 departures a day in each direction between Alyko and Naxos town before sept. 15. None at all later in september. Between Mikri Viglia and Naxos town the only buses in "winter-time" was 07:30 from Mikri Viglia, return 13:00 and 14:30.

The time-table in Greekmads link seems to show the summer-routes.
