Bus tickets & pricesRoutes

In brief, KTEL buses are the cheapest transport option in Chania. Numerous urban and suburban buses run every day, serving both tourist and non-tourist areas.
Visitors who want to be more flexible with their holiday schedule would benefit more from a rental car, though.

Buses are the most affordable means of transportation in Chania, with the urban routes being able to take you to most inhabited areas around the main town of Chania.
When it comes to suburban routes the KTEL buses of Chania, in cooperation with the ones in Rethymno, can take you to the rest of the Chania area and a number of villages, as well as the other big cities of Crete like Rethymno and Heraklion.
