    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The price is reasonable for a sinlgle ride , 85 cents. You have a convenient ride unless it is summer time otherwise you'll keep standing the whole way. It is air conditioned buses and has regular schedules and extra timetables during high season until or after midnight.
    The only contra-thing is, we cannot buy day tickets.
    The latest fare as of 2006 is 1 Euro.

    Costa Azul Bus way down to Cabo Cervera Station for Bus C,F,G,D
