    Buses in Cyprus

    I went from Limassol to Larnaca airport three days ago.
    Have a look on this thread below:
    http://www.airportshuttlebus.eu/
    I got the bus from Agios Georgios Havouzas church and I paid 8 euros and I was driven to the airport for 8 euros.

    The means of transport in Cyprus have changed recently and there is frequent service even during the weekends!Just ignore what old travel guides might say.
    It is true, and even me who is a Cypriot cannot believe it!

    From Platres to Limassol daily routes for 2 euro

    EMEL Buses Opposite the Old Hospital in Limassol

    Tourists wishing to get to the Troodos mountain or travel to Platres can do this with just a euro.

    They are the EMEL buses and they are small lorries that take people to different villages. The main bus station is opposite the Old Hospital in Limasol, but you have to be exactly the time the bus leaves because the driver won’t wait a single minute.

    I have tried them myself as I could not really believe it!! Of course I am changing the tip and adding more information.

    There is a bus for Pano Platres that takes you directly to the square. This leaves at 1.30pm. I took the one that said Platres, and it took me up to Kato Platres and from there I had a friend to come and pick me.
    The buses that go to Platres make a stop in Kato platres and after 15 minutes they move on to Fini and Prodromos villages. So if one wants to get to Pano Platres has to either pick the bus that goes to Troodos which is certainly passing through Kato Platres, Pano Platres and then Troodos, or take the bus for Pano Platres that goes directly there. (1.30 pm)
    The bus for Kato Platres, Fini and Prodromos leaves from Limassol at 12.30.

    Check the site for all bus routes and timetable.
    Automatic phone without using a code is +77778121

    Tel +357 255522220

    From Pano Platres the bus leaves from the Police Station area.

    Central Bus station Opposite the Old Hospital

    The rural buses at the Old Hospital Bus station

    Take bus #201 from the bus stop after the roundabout at the old port. It will take you to the Main Bus station opposite the Old Hospital.

    From this station you can get the buses for Platres, Troodos, and many more villages like Omodos, Pelendri, Potamitissa, Agros, Lanea and so many other.

    I went up to Platres with just one euro the previous week. (May 5th 2011). The bus left me at Kato Platres. The rest of the passengers went to Troodos.

    The Blue bus # 30 in Limassol

    by greekcypriot Updated May 12, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The blue bus on the main beach road where the hotels are is very frequent.
    On my recent trip to Limassol I used it continuously.
    The cost is one euro for one way, and if you pay 2 euro with the same ticket you can jump on and off all domestic buses for a whole day.

    # 30 blue bus starts from the Le Meridien Hotel which is in the very end of Limassol near Amathus archaeological site, up to the New Port outside Limassol.
    There is a bus every 10 minutes, and if you wish to go to the shopping centre you come down at the Old port.
    There are many shops, restaurants and cafe bars in the whole of this area.

    Russian visas for Cyprus

    by MrBill Updated Feb 28, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    alone on the beach

    Wasn't sure where to put this TIP, but then again, as so few are ever read and or commented on, this is a public service announcement just as likely to be ignored as followed. Still, it is Friday afternoon here in Cyprus, and this my first update to my pages this week, so it helps you, I am happy.

    In an effort to stem losses of holiday bookings by Russians to Cyprus of up to 25-percent after visa-free travel was abolished this year, Cypriot authorities will stop charging Russians for visas in 2004 & 2005 it was announced.

    In an effort to improve visas to Cyprus, 60-percent of visas are issued within 24-hours according to the Cypriot Embassy. Less than one percent of Russians are refused the visa. There is now a new Cypriot Consulate in St. Petersburg as well as the Embassy in Moscow.

    140.000 Russians visit Cyprus each year. Cyprus is suffering this year from a drop in the number of Russians visiting, but also from a Cyprus pound that is considered some 30-percent overvalued. Cyprus is one of the most expensive Meditteranean destinations and offers poor value for the money in comparison with other areas.

    Never the less some 20.000 Russians live & work in Cyprus, many in Limassol.

    rent a wreck

    all the major chains are represented

    My colleagues & I always use Michaelides Car Rentals in Limassol. The owners name is Demetris Michaelides. He is very flexible and his prices are reasonable. If you need a car, he will drop it off at the airport in Larnaca for you. The taxi fare is equal to one day's hire, so this is a nice perk. His telephone is +357 25 327380 fax +357 25 329582.

    If you rent with your credit card and it covers your insurance, don't let him sell you extra insurance (CYP5 per day). Also, you might wish to bring the car back fully tanked versus prepaying CYP25 for a tank, as gas is not as expensive in Cyprus as elsewhere in Europe.

    I rented a nice small Peugot 206 last summer and payed CYP 12 per day incl. insurance. I have seen cheaper prices, but then cars were not as new or not as nice. I like his reliability, and as I said, the drop-off/pick-up at the airport is handy.

    I see prices advertised for as low as CYP 8 per day, but that is without insurance, so be careful when comparing prices. Obviously, larger cars, SUVs and cabriolets cost more.

    1 CYP = $2.26

    Rigas Taxi Service

    by MrBill Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rigas Taxi

    Basically, you can pick-up a taxi at the airport, but then you never know you will have for a driver. I like to know.

    I use Rigas taxi service because I know the drivers are reliable. I can call them to pick me up at the airport in Larnaca at 03.00-04.00 in the middle of night, and I know they will be there. Or I can reserve a return trip when they drop me off and I know they will be waiting for me when I return several days or several weeks later.

    Nothing worse than ordering a cab to pick you up in the middle of the night and then not have it show up. Then you are stuck and have to renegotiate and hope you do not have a bad driver.

    All their cars are nice, large Mercedes sedans with big trunks and room for four adult passengers. The cost from Larnaca to Limassol is CYP 25 one way or CYP 35 return. At night the cost is CYP 28. I usually give them a few pounds as a tip. They appreciate it and then give me great service the next time, too.

    1 CYP = $2.25

    Limassol - Nicosia

    coca cloa is every where

    I have never taken the bus or know anyone else that has taken the bus in Cyprus. Mostly we use taxis. However, there is a bus that runs between Limassol and Nicosia and it only costs CYP2.50 one-way versus a taxi which will cost approximately CYP25.

    It departs from the Municipal Market Park Place in Limassol and ends up in Nicosia at Solomos Square.

    Buses run Monday through Friday from 06.00 until 17.30 departure. Saturdays from 07.00 until 14.00, and on Sundays starting at 09.00 until 17.30 departure time.

    It takes 45 minutes to drive from Limassol city limits to Nicosia city limits. The bus takes longer. A monthly bus pass costs CYP60-75.

    $1 = 2.25 Cyprus pounds

    I arrived to Cyprus with my friend by plain. As the airport is in Larnaca we faced the question how we will get to Limassol because we had hotelroom reservation in there. Because we arrived to Cyprus around the midnight there was'nt too much transportation to choose. One and only possibility to get from one point to another in the midnight is by taxi. As the Limassol is about 35 - 40 km from Larnaca the price we agreed with driver was about
    15£
    We choosed our foot and had travelagency agreement to have excursions by bus.

    Since there is not any airport around Limassol, you have to book your flight to the nearest big city- Larnaca. The distance between the both cities is about 60 kms. There is a highway leading to Limassol in less than 50 minutes.

    Driving on the left

    by Nikolay_Ivanov Written Feb 24, 2011

    As in Britain, there is left-hand traffic in Cyprus. For me, as a pedestrian, was not too difficult to getting used to look right. The drivers in Limassol are careful drivers and I haven't seen any accidents around during my stay there.
