Sicily bus schedules
Does anyone know where I can find semi-readable schedules for the buses in Sicily? I am trying to figure out how I am going to get from Palermo to Marina di Ragusa on May 25th. Normally I would just show up at the bus station and hope for the best, but I need to arrange my schedule somewhat in advance because other people are renting cars, booking flights etc based on when I leave Palermo and arrive in Marina di Ragusa so I want to be able to give them times.

I'm just assuming bus is the best way to get there, if anyone knows a better method please let me know! If anyone can even just help me find a schedule from Palermo to Ragusa that would be great, I think I can manage to make it from Ragusa to Marina di Ragusa with no trouble.

You probably found the same site I did:

I'm going to look at the Palermo to Ragusa and see if I can translate! Please stay tuned.

When hub and I were there 10 years ago (!) there were 3 different bus companies in one area near the train station. Each had a slightly different method of ticket buying!

Would you be going from the Palermo airport or from Palermo city??

Well, the above stymied me.

Here's another that says it can provide bus info (it's a private transfer company):

I have to stop now. Will check back in the a.m. This should have been so simple, eh?

Post your question on the Sicily forum of tripadvisor. The incredible vagabonda will help you. I think this is the bus company that covers Palermo to Ragusa Sicily has many different bus companies that cover different routes. We went by bus from Palermo to Ragusa but we stopped in Agrigento.
