Of the local bus companies, Kamenoi (23-5170) is the largest. Most buses are numbered. An unlimited ‘My Beppu Free’ travel pass for Kamenoi buses comes in two varieties: the ‘minipass’ (adult/student ¥900/700), which covers all the local attractions, including the hells, and the ‘wide pass’ (one/two days ¥1600/2400), which goes further afield to Yufuin and Ritsumeikan APU. Passes are available from the Foreign Tourist Information Office and at various lodgings around town. Buses 5, 9 and 41 take you to Myōban (20 to 30 minutes).
