Toilets on buses??

I've just realised that some of our bus trips are 5 or 6 hours, and wondering if they do toilets stops or if there are toilets on board? We''ll be using the Moskenes to Svalvaer route, and Svalvaer to Narvik.

Thanks :-)

There are normally interchange points with a petrol station/inn/café which also serve as toilet stops. I cannot really remember if the buses have toilets.

Ok, thanks for your reply.

I'm hoping someone will know for sure as this could be a big problem for my son. When he needs to go he needs to go so if the stops are at hourly (or longer) intervals he's going to have an uncomfortable time during the long bus journeys, or not be able to drink much!

In the UK public buses don't have toilets but they're very short journeys within individual towns or cities, for traveling to other towns (more than around an hour journey) it's always on coaches that have toilets.

It will depend on the bus on the day I think. There are no guarantees there will be toilets onboard. Perhaps consider renting a car if frequent toilet breaks are needed?

In my experience there is normally a toilet on board long distance express buses. There would also be a toilet at any town bus station on the route, so even if there is no scheduled break there you would be able to use it during the brief stop. Just tell the driver that you are going to do so. Scheduled breaks in timetables on long journeys are to allow passengers to have a meal.

Thanks for the replies, I also had a reply from the bus company confirming there is a toilet on all Lofoten Express buses.
