The bus is a very convenient way to reach and move around the Lake Garda.
In Italy you can normally buy bus tickets at the bus station, at the ticket office, but also in tobacco shops and kiosks. Alternatively you can also buy them on board, but usually the price is higher in this case.
Below you can find the main bus routes to Lake Garda operated by the public transport service.
Bus service on the western coast
There are two main lines that run along Lake Garda’s western coast:
The first one, part of Line S202 goes from Salò to Riva del Garda. Another Line covers the entire coast, from Desenzano to Riva del Garda: it’s Line 27 (LN027), that passes through Padenghe, Moniga, Manerba, Salò, Toscolano, and Limone, and takes about 2 hours.
Also in this case, there are two main options to climb up the veronese coast:
Lines 162, 163, 164, and 185 will take you from Verona to Lake Garda by bus, but they all stop in the city of Garda. If you want to go further north, you can take a bus of the Line 484, that goes from Garda to Riva passing through Torri del Benaco, Brenzone, Malcesine, and Torbole. The whole trip takes about one hour.
