Amalfi Coast Bus Tickets

Jump to last reply

SITA Bus Lines announces a new fare structure for bus ticket along the Amalfi Coast (from Salerno all the way to Sorrento in either direction, but excluding Pompei and Naples):

Name of Special Ticket: "UNICO COSTIERA"

45-minute ticket: 2.00 Euros
90-minute ticket: 3.00 Euros
24-hour ticket: 6.00 Euros
3-day ticket: 15 Euros

BEWARE: These tickets are valid for travel ONLY along the Amalfi Coast, which is defined as all towns between Sorrento/Positano/Praiano/Amalfi/Salerno, but not beyond. Ravello is included in these tickets (since it can be reached by bus only from Amalfi). Do NOT purchase these tickets if you are not travelling strictly BETWEEN towns along the Amalfi Coast (e.g. Sorrento/Positano; Positano/Praiano; Positano/Amalfi; Praiano/Amalfi; Amalfi/Ravello; Amalfi/Salerno; or points in-between).

NOTE: These tickets are valid for multiple bus rides within the validity of the ticket. You may not BOARD a bus with an expired ticket, but you generally are allowed to COMPLETE a trip even beyond the validity of the 45 or 90-minute ticket. Example: You're travelling between Sorrento and Ravello on a 90-minute ticket. You punch your ticket upon boarding the first bus in Sorrento. Travel time between Sorrento and Amalfi is usually 100 minutes (or more), but you are allowed to complete the run to Amalfi, even if your ticket has expired while on board. However, you may NOT board the second bus from Amalfi to Ravello with the expired ticket. You must instead buy a new (45-minute) ticket. Alternatively, you should purchase a 24-hour ticket at Sorrento.

BEWARE: The 45-minute ticket is designed for short trips such as Amalfi/Ravello and Amalfi/Positano. For longer trips such as Salerno/Amalfi or Sorrento/Positano, you should purchase the 90-minute ticket (or the 24-hour ticket, if you plan to use the buses later that same day).

NOTE: If you're taking the SITA bus between Naples or Pompei and the Amalfi Coast, or between the Amalfi Coast and Paestum, or between Naples and Sorrento, or between Naples and Pompei, do NOT buy the "UNICO COSTIERA" tickets described above; instead, buy the regular "Unicocampania" zone tickets for the distance involved.
For example, for travel by bus between Naples and Sorrento or Amalfi or Positano, you must purchase a "biglietto Fascia 5" for 3.30 Euros one-way or 6.60 Euros for 24-hours, or 5.30 Euros on Saturday or Sunday. For travel between Amalfi and Paestum (Capaccio), you must purchase a "biglietto extraurbano E6" for 3.50 Euros one-way or 7.00 Euros for 24-hours, or 5.60 Euros on Saturday or Sunday. For the city of Naples (plus Pozzuoli), you must purchase the "Unico Napoli" ticket for 1.10 Euros one-way or 3.10 Euros for 24-hours, or 2.60 Euros on Saturday or Sunday. The Fascia 5 bus ticket described above is also valid for travel on the Circumvesuviana light rail between Naples and Sorrento.
