The red east side busses


The red busses are owned by the KTEL company and drive around the eastern side of the island. There are a lot of busses going to the popular places on the east side of the island such as Faliraki and the most beautiful beaches. But you can also take this bus to go to Lindos, the amazing white city of Rhodes known for its acropolis. The bus rides every hour and the price until Lindos will be around €5,50.

Important tips!


Visiting Rhodes by public transportation is cheap and busses ride regularly. An important note is that these busses (in 2020) have no air-conditioning. So driving by bus all the way to the south can take hours and will be unpleasant.


I suggest renting a car for long distances but take the bus to Rhodes town because it is just impossible to park there!

Rhodes town

For the popular distances (such as Ixia - Rhodes town or Faliraki - Rhodes town) you will have a lot of people on the bus and some busses don't even stop when they are full! It is important to take an early bus to Rhodes town to avoid the crowd and guarantee your spot on the bus.


If you need more information about the local means of transportation don't hesitate to contact me! Wishing you a lot of fun on the gorgeous island of Rhodes and happy exploring!


Keep on dreaming and Fly Along!
