On the Santa Cruz route, pay attention to the bus stops that you pass along the way. Some seem to be perched on the roadside with nothing nearby but an eye-watering uphill scramble to a far off pueblo you can just make out clinging to the hillside in the distance.
Time to time the bus stops and lets people off in the middle of nowhere and you think … what? Where on earth are these people going for there is nothing in sight except a steep hillside or a cliff falling away to the sea.
Using Santa Cruz, Los Cristianos or Las Americas as a hub, wherever you want to get to on the island, one of TITSA’s Tenerife buses will get you there.
One of the island’s most experienced and entertaining bus aficionados is writer Colin Kirby. Many of the Tenerife adventures that he writes about on his blog start off in the early morning at a bus stop and boy, does he do some gadding about!
The only reservations I have about the Tenerife bus service is one I would have about anywhere: try not to travel by bus during rush hours.
There is a discount card which can be purchased from all stations and terminals of TITSA and many shops around Tenerife. The Bono-Bus card costs about €12 but saves up to 30% of the cost of transport as well as discounts for entry into Tenerife’s museums.
