Routes Everything from meandering local routes to fast, reliable InterCity connections is provided by numerous bus companies.
Timetables and tickets These are available on bus-company websites and from local tourist offices. Tickets are generally competitively priced with the train and are often the only way to get to smaller towns. In larger cities most of the InterCity bus companies have ticket offices or sell tickets through agencies. In villages and even some good-sized towns, tickets are sold in bars or on the bus.
Advance booking Generally not required, but advisable for overnight or long-haul trips in high season.
