    hi, the local bus service from ct to pdc runs every 20 mins, until late into the evening, it is service no 3 and takes between 45 mins and 1 hour dependant on the amount of people around. the price is 2.90 euros each way, not sure if you get any discounts for children etc. just ask the driver when you board hope this helps
    have a great holiday

    If you get the bus, ask the driver for a bono. Cost is 22 euro for the first time and can then be recharged for 20 euro. This gets you your fares at a discount. You simply put it on the scanner next to the driver and tell him where you wish to go. Go all the way to biosphere and then take a leisurely stroll back towards ct. When you get tired simply get back on the bus. You can walk several miles and if you feel up to it arrive in Matagorda and watch the planes landing and taking off. Quite an experience if you have never done it before as you can get right next to the end of the runway and the planes are. Only feet above your head.

      Kevin, regarding the Bono, can this be used for a group of people or it is to be used only for an individual as per our own daily / weekly passes here in the uk?????

    just to let you know that you can no longer buy Bono on some of the bus routes ie 3 being one of them

    Can be used for a group . It is not restricted to one person . My wife and I share one and occasionally a friend.

    I purchased a bono on a no. 3 bus 2 weeks ago. just ask the driver.

      Kevin I read on a web site I think it was Lanzarote information that you could no longer buy the bono cards from the drivers on the no 3 plus a couple of other routes you had I think you had to get them from some place in Arrecife.

    Steve, I don’t know when you read this article but the old bono was withdrawn last year and you had to go to the bus station to get one for a period of time but they have now installed new equipment on the buses. There is a scanner right next to the driver and you simply drop your card on it and state your destination. if there are two or more people you simply lift the card off after paying your fare, drop it back on and ask for a further fare. very simple. As stated, I purchased a bono only two weeks ago on the no.3 bus.

    If you get off at the Biosphere and walk back through PDC the first Bus stop back is the San Antonio Hotel which is a fair walk depending on your age and any possible disabilities. The drawback to a one way system.
