If you like to get around via public bus, you’re in luck in Perugia. There is a good bus system here that employs an intricate routing system sure to get you exactly where you need to go.

The apm runs on 16 primary bus lines that run every 20-30 minutes and 14 secondary bus lines that run every 30 to 60 minutes. These buses run throughout the city, from the outskirts, to the city centre and between various areas in Perugia. The system’s goal is to get you to exactly where you want to be either with a direct line, or via a connection.

A new bus terminal at Piazza Partigiani opened in 1999 and is the primary terminal from which the buses operate. More than 5,000 passengers use this terminal daily (be aware that 2,000 of them use the terminal between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., if you happen to be traveling around the city at that time as well). The terminal serves as a connection point as well as a base for the bus system’s operations.

Another popular way to get around Perugia is by taxi, but of course this method will be significantly less frugal than taking the bus.
