SITA bus from Sorrento to Positano

Can we bring large suitcases on the SITA bus from Sorrento to Positano? Is there a luggage compartment in the bottom of the bus? We plan to take the bus on Saturday, May 10, 2014 about 5 PM. Thank you, from Cathy.

HINT: Line up immediately at the bus stop terminus in front of the Circumvesuviana train station in Sorrento. The bus will FILL UP VERY QUICKLY and passengers will be standing all the way to Positano. Let hubby place the suitcases in the underfloor hold while YOU jump on board and claim two seats (preferably on the right side facing the driver).

Map out the distance from the bus stop in Positano to your hotel or apartment!

There are two stops in Positano - find out which one is closest to your hotel (you can tell us here where your hotel is so we can let you know the closest stop) or just email and ask your hotel if they do not have clear directions on their website. You can then tell the driver which stop you need; I have been on them when they are so full that they will pass by stops in Positano (especially the second stop) if they can't take on any more people -

And, also, just in case you are not traveling with a "hubby" (as not all of us do), just quickly get the bags beneath the bus and have the other person (hubby, friend, whoever) save those two seats. Be prepared to be a bit aggressive without being obnoxious about it - stand your ground when the doors open as it becomes a free for all and people scramble to get on without regard to any line - just stand firm and don't let people past you before you get on.

I am also wondering how the SITA from Positano to Sorrento. How long does it take? Where is Positano does it pick up from? And I don't see a website where I can buy tickets ahead of time. Do I have to buy them the day-of?
