TRAVEL BY BUS THROUGH MYKONOS
Buses in Mykonos are the cheapest transport to get around Mykonos. Its high quality road networks enable tourists to explore the island with ease and convenience. Mykonos bus stations are both located in Chora or the Mykonos Town, each one lying on different sides of the place, the southern station and the northern station.
- The southern station is located in Fabrica square. Here, the buses are headed to Platys Gialos and Paradise both every 30 minutes, Paraga after an hour interval, Agios Ioannis, and Ornos. The station also has night buses that travel to Paradise and Platys Gialos which leave every hour.
- The northern station on the other hand is situated behind the town’s archaeological museum, in proximity to the telephone company building. From this station, bus routes are around the north and east part of Mykonos – Tourlos, Agios Stefanos, Kalafati, Kalo Livadi, Ano Mera, and Elia.
Do not worry much about the departure times and end of the bus route as they are all clearly marked in both stations.
The not-so-good part about these two bus stations is that there isn’t a bus connection between them. That means, if you are from the northern part of the island and would want to go to the other, you’d need to go on foot for 20 minutes to reach it. You can buy your bus tickets direct from the bus driver or in a bus vending machine placed in mini-markets, tourist shops and kiosks in the island – you’d need euro coins for this. Bus tickets are priced at € 1.60 for day trips, at night, tickets cost € 2. Take note that buses are often full during the day as drivers try to squeeze in as many passengers as he can.
