Timetables 2019.

Here are the schedules for this summer. We still don’t have the timatables for September-October, but it’s usually the same “low season” as it was in May-June.
Thank you Holland, Hungary and Sweden for sharing the pictures with us, and help everybody to make holiday plans by bus!

If you start planning, please first read ALL the informations written on this website and on the facebook – if you did it, and there is still no answer for your question, ask us. In other case, if the answer is already written, please don’t wait for our message, because our time is also limited, we also have job, family and holiday. 😉 If you have any special request about the buses, you have to contact the KTEL (phone, e-mail, personally) – we don’t have any official connection with the bus company.

Don’t forget, it’s an un-official page based on tourist experiences – upon arrival you should double check everything at the bus station!

Keep in mind: peace, respect, teamwork – and have a great holiday on Karpathos!


High season


Low season 2019.

Coming soon…

The season starts soon, so let’s see, who will be the first this year capturing the schedule!

❗️❗️❗️ Until we’ll have the timetables of 2019, you can check the schedules from last year, make your plans – and don’t worry, usually there are no big changes. ❗️❗️❗️

Wish you a pleasant summer, enjoy your holiday on Karpathos!

P.s: If somebody doesn’t get any answer to a message on fb means that the answer is already written on the facebook or on the website…  Thank you in advance to respect our job and time.

Summer is coming

Hello everybody! Sorry for the silence.
Summer is coming, and I hope, you’ll visit Karpathos! Feel free to share your thoughts, opinions, photos, questions on our facebook site (pre-moderating), ask for help and help, if you can.
The Karpathos by bus site wishes you a very happy and prospering year – and of course a trip to this beautiful island!


Help for staying up-to-date

Dear visitors/passengers! Due third party reasons I’ll be not on the island for a while. But I don’t want to give up this site, I don’t want to loose the up-to-date style. This page was created for help all of you, who doesn’t have a driving license (or just doesn’t want to drive during the holiday), to show that it’s possible to see a lot from Karpathos without car and independently from travel agencies. Be free, don’t follow a group, follow your dreams, your taste!
So if anybody will have a newer schedule, useful informations, experiences, changes, ideas, please, share on the facebook site! (Karpathos by bus) Thank you very much!

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Winter arrived

The season of 2014 is already finished. The schedule will be not updated until the next summer, and the page is still under construction. Wish you a pleasant wintertime!



Because of third-party reasons the site will be not available from the 9th of September for a while. Please, don’t forget it, and come back later. Now save the informations, what you need, and arriving to the island check the new schedule at the bus station in Pigadia. Thank you for your visit, and hope to see you again here! In the new period there will be place also for your experiences and opinions (even if it’s good or bad), so think about it now – I count all on you!
Have a pleasant holiday on Karpathos!
