Mt. Vesuvius Bus from Ercolano/Herculaneum Circumvesuviana Station

It was my 3rd trip to Herculaneum and I never before noticed the tourist info office which is easy to miss and the bus stop for this bus.
But I didn't take it and never will nor the Amalfi Coast buses! I have a phobia of mountain roads with another person driving. Waking up at 3am in a sleeper of an 18-wheeler going down a mountain road at ~100mph freewheeling (in neutral) will do that to you . Esp if the driver is high on Amphetamines .
Anyway exit the Ercolano Station into the small parking lot and walk over towards the right corner of the lot.
You will see a small white sign 'riservato bus-BUS VESUVIO' and a yellow lined parking space for it.
I believe it leaves every couple of hours of so and you *do* buy the tickets from the driver.
The only street out of the parking lot leads straight to the Herculaneum entrance.
50m down that street is a round-about intersection and 20m after that on the right is the tourist info office (green sign/gold letters 'UFFICIO TURISTICO'.
They will have the schedule printed-out on their desk. Plan from there, wait or visit Herculaneum. Or if you are pressed for time the taxi drivers outside the station are always pitching this trip as tourists walk by. I assume, negotiate and agree on a price and I've heard that they sometimes claim that the bus doesn't run anymore .
Regards, Walter
