The timetable below was taken from the KTEL Lesvos website on 27 September 2022.
The fare is €1.80 per journey.
There are many stops along the route but if you have a particular destination it is worth letting the driver know as they will drop you off. If you need specific information on the local bus service please email us and we will try to help.
Τhank you for this Robin . Will be so useful next week when we arrive . Ann and Peter
Do you have a shuttle service from the airport to Molyvos?
There is not a direct connection from the airport to Molyvos. You would need to catch the local bus into Mytilene and then get to the bus depot. Sadly the local bus does not go to the main bus depot. You would then get the bus to Molyvos.
You can see the timetable on the bus company website here http://bit.ly/2NFdlLk
It is much simpler, although more expensive to get a taxi!
We will stay in ‘Meraki time to smile’ this summer (Mithymna 811 08), can you tell us if we can take a bus there to Molyvos and how long it will take? And where will the bus stop, not in the centre? There’s no bus to the port or castle right? And until what time will the bus return?
Thanks for answering in advance. Greeting, Denise
The bus passes the path to the Meraki. It takes a couple of minutes to get to the stop in Molyvos, which is opposite the open-air cinema. There is no bus to the castle but the village train does. There is no bus to the port, you will need to take a taxi if you don’t want to walk (it is a very nice walk). The bus timetable can be seen above. We will post a new timetable as soon as it is published.
The Meraki is close to our house, 1km from the village entrance. We normally walk into the village, it helps build the appetite. The closest taverna is the Alonia, which is at the entrance to the village.
Is there a bus stop near de Golden Beach in Eftalou, is the bus stopping by request?
The bus stops outside the Eftalou Taverna which is about 500 metres from Golden Beach.
Where do I find the bus stop in Anaxos?
There is a stop at the entrance to the village (nearest Skoutaros) there is also one near Christina’s Garden.
Do you know the timetable from Anaxos to Petra v.v. from 20th till the 27th of September?
The local bus has stopped running until next year.
When will the bus service between Anaxos and Molyvos start for 2022
Hope to be there in May
The bus company gives us little notice when the local bus service starts. some years, the first we know is when it drives past our house. So I can’t help you with information for 2022.
In previous years it has started between mid-May and mid-June. It depends on visitor numbers.
Is there a bus to the Monastery of Saint Raphael?
We should land on the island around 15:45, on a Friday.
I’m sorry to say but there is no bus that goes all the way there and the timing is all wrong. If you want to try at another time, you would need to take the bus that goes from Mytilene to Mantamados and get off at Thermi beach. You would then need to take a taxi. The bus timetable is here https://www.ktel-lesvou.gr/index.php?option=dromologia&new_lang=en
My personal suggestion would be to hire a car. The roads are good and not at all busy.
Hi there. Has the bus started up again yet please from anacos to molyvos? Thank you.
As of 22 May, the bus is not running.
A couple of questions please.
Is there a bus from the airport to sapfo square Mitilini ?
Is there a bus from Mitilini to Skala Kallonis or is the bus just to Kalloni?
Yes, there is a bus from the airport to Sappho Square. There is no bus to Skala Kalloni. You would need to get a taxi for the last part of the journey.
I would also add that there are only 3 buses a day. The last bus leaves Mytilene at 13:00.
Thank you so much for that.
Can you confrim that the bus from Mytilene goes to Skala Kallonis, not just to Skala.
The bus from Mytilene goes to Kalloni. Skala Kalloni is the holiday resort. You will need to get a taxi from Kalloni to Skala Kalloni.
Yasas, we will be coming to Anaxos at the end of September is it possible to find a bus schedule beforehand, or do we just hope they haven’t finished by then. From your experience time of the year do they normally finish ?
The local bus stops when tourists stop using the service. This varies from year to year. We will post a note here when the bus stops or if the schedule changes.
Bus 17 Anaxos to Efftalou was the very best. The driver was so helpful and cheery, great music too … thank you very much.
Hope next year the bus will be running also in May.
