Getting about Elba using public transport

There is a public bus service on the Island of Elba that covers the entire island.

The buses provide all year round connections with all the major towns, and from June to September the Marebus beach service is also brought on and provides connections with the beaches in Portoferraio, Marciana, Rio nell'Elba, Rio Marina, Porto Azzurro and Capoliveri.

Tourists can also purchase a BUS ELBACARD with which they can travel anywhere on all the CTT urban and suburban lines on the Island of Elba, valid either for 1 day or for 6 days. The one-day ticket costs 8,50 euros and the 6 day one costs 22 euros. This season ticket can be purchased in the offices of the CTT, Compagnia Toscana Trasporti - the public bus company on the Island of Elba.

Besides this, those who have a monthly, yearly, urban or extraurban season ticket or a CTT North bus ticket that has been punched no ealier than three days beforehand or a BUS ELBACARD are entitled to discounts and special offers if they go into one of the many shops or exhibitions on the Island of Elba.

Departure (and arrival) is in the bus station right at the port in Portoferraio , right next to where the ferries from Piombino come in.
