Intercity bus travel is not only long and uncomfortable, it's not encouraged for foreigners in almost all of Tibet. You can, however, take the pilgrim buses that leave every day at 6:30 am from Barkhor Square headed to Ganden Monastery. You can also travel to Shigatse from Lhasa Bus station at Jinzhu Lu.
