Praiano Interno

Local bus looping Praiano

Tasso Bus Praiano Interno.jpg

Interno Praiano local Bus local bus line loops the entire village of Praiano constantly until late at night. The company buses stop all shelters from number 1 to number 25.

On the linked schedule you will see listed only its main bus stops which are considered the terminal stops of the main roads of Praiano.

Let’s say you are along via Costantinopoli, the upper part of Praiano, and you are close to bus stop 19, you must consider the terminal stop 22 to determine the approximate time the bus passes by you. As you will only see listed on the schedule the number 22 via Cella; but the bus to reach nr 22 must drive and obviously stops at nr.19. So, whoever is between bus stop 16 and 22, must check time for nr. 22.

Some suggestions when using this bus:

Passengers that must be dropped along via Umberto I are the luckiest as the bus terminates there at each loop, so they will be always served 😊

Guests residing around Via San Giuliano should rather use bus stop 17, as the driver might drive by 23-24-25 on request!

Whoever is by bus stop 15 is in a great position as the bus gets to there at each loop 2 times.

Bus nr 9 or the central 7 is served constantly. And tourist that are in the upper part of Praiano whenever they want to use the Sitasud might consider the local bus rides to get to them to commute with Sitasud.

Passengers are requested to have a valid paper ticket. It is not allowed to pay by App or cards yet on this bus. Tickets can be purchased on the bus and in cash at € 2 each ride No cards option available.  Please have small bills or coins to pay the driver. The price for a single ride, if you purchase paper ticket

 in advance at the stores, it is Euro 1,00
