Double check Titsa in time, as late could mean sorry...

Titsa Tenerife public transport with its green buses is a fantastic institution. However, take it with a pinch of salt.

Don't get me wrong. The people who are employed there are extremely willing to help you. However, mind the following:

This public bus company has updates, but doesn't announce them on posters at bus stops or at tourist information centers.

Sometime in Spring 2018, I encountered an announcement on the wall by the bus counter in Puerto de la Cruz. It encouraged people to travel before 7 a.m. from Puerto Cruz to the capital for only Euro 1,15. I would almost call this an event.

 Excellent News for May 2018 for Tenerife transport by this bus company mean the following:

Buy a bus credit card called Tenmás for Euro 2 just once. Do it at bus depots and offices as well as at petrol service stations where you can also stock up on credit, unless you prefer to use your smartphone or pay cash instead. The Shell station of Toscal Longuera was out of stock of cards when I passed there today on May 20, 2018. Tenmás sells like hot cakes as the Bonobus isn't for sale any more.

Here even a possible last minute announcement among other transport help

Your Tenerife Titsa transport precautions

  • Always get the latest timetable by this enterprise.
  • Always double check bus numbers and departure times before you travel.
  • Don't rely on its saying that there is a 24 hour information;
    it says so on one of my bus timetable information,
    while a later announcement in the day may contradict this.
  • Call Tel: 922 53 13 00.
  • An answering machine even tells you in English to kindly hold on
    when it's occupied.
  • Never call late in the afternoon, but best in the morning.
  • Do so, just in case that something unexpected may have happened
    at Tenerife's public bus offices.

I was relying on a former Puerto de la Cruz airport South bus. Meantime its number had been changed from 341 to 343. I never found the 341, which was done away with by the way. Therefore, no chance to verify in a hurry... Also, its bus information people had gone home early.

Make the best of odd bus times

Last time when I traveled Tenerife to Maastricht direct in August 2011, I took a break at the cheap Airport hotel Aeropuerto Sur because of the inconvenient Ryanair flight time in summer and the last bus at 21.20. I also wanted to see the Medano with its beaches and kitesurfing, which I didn't regret..

    1. Bonobus discount cards

      Unfortunately, they are not sold at the airport.

      You could buy one at any terminal bus station in a bigger town. However, I purchased my last one in April 2018. I can still use it but later, i can only get a Tenmás cardDiscover more about these important interesting Tenerife news about the island Guaguas

      The bonobus card is transferable.

      But, always use the same until finished. Even a 20cent balance on it entitles you to continue to travel cheap by topping up with cash. You get extra discounts which considers zones which you used on the previous journey within a time limit. Learn as you go. Titsa is a bargain, indeed.

      However, car hire Tenerife is always the better option than public transport when you want to make the most of a short holiday.

      Generally, time is money, you know...
