Local bus services
« on: September 23, 2014, 04:46:25 PM »
This may be helpful to new residents and visitors. If you like a drink and don't want to drive there are  excellent local bus services that will take you to Vera, Garrucha, Mojacar, Carboneras, Turre, Palomares and Villaricos. For Vera, Garrucha and Mojacar there are bus stops at Consum roundabout and just up from Vera Natura roundabout. Time tables are posted at most bus stops and are also available on the bus. Off season the last buses back to VP do not run late:  9pm from Mojacar; 9.25pm from Garrucha and 8pm from Vera.

Unless things have changed since the last time we were in VP there are no actual posts or shelters at Consum roundabout but for Vera wait at Consum side for Garrucha and Mojacar wait on the opposite side.

Never seen a bus to Turre, presumably you have to change at some point?

Hi Dotty, quite correct. To get to Turre you have to get the bus from Vera bus station or change buses in Garrucha  at th Maritime museum or in Mojacar at the Centro Comercial. Turre buses are not as frequent as Vera/ Garrucha/ Mojacar services. Turre timetable is available at Vera bus station on request. Hope this helps.

Is it possible to travel to Cabo de Gata from VP by bus?
