Buses and Trains
Bus transport in Sardinia is managed by the ARST company for local and regional buses. The best way to find timetables and connections is through Google Maps. Traveling by bus is not always easy due to the lack of direct lines. For specific tourist routes it is better to rely on private bus companies that operate mainly during the summer period.
Traveling by train is also quite difficult given the lack of an efficient and modern rail network. In any case, it is possible to travel by train while making various stopovers from Cagliari to Alghero or from Olbia to Alghero.
It remains undoubtedly the best way to travel to Sardinia! The car is essential to move, reach the beaches, the most interesting places that are often not reached by public transport.
We recommend that you rent the car online and well in advance to get the best rate. Local companies often offer higher prices especially under date, so renting it in advance will certainly make you save a lot.
