Public Bus Service in Jávea

The current contract for providing the public bus service in Jávea is run by Grupo DeniBus who provide a single route called TOSCAMARBUS which runs between the old town and the Toscamar urbanisation via the port and the Arenal beach area.

HOW TO USE THE BUS 

There are a number of bus stops dotted around the municipality, most being a simple green pole with a timetable pasted to it, although more are now being provided with shelter from the sun and, to some extent, the rain. In some places, especially along the coastline between the port and the Arenal, the bus stop exists only on one side of the road (the Arenal direction); to catch the bus in the opposite direction, simply stand opposite the stop and flag down the bus as it approaches. Most of the drivers are quite pleasant but be aware that very few of them – if any – speak enough English to engage in conversation.

There is just one price for whatever distance you are travelling so you don’t need to state your destination but simply hand over your money (be aware that the drivers prefer change; some have even refused to take notes, even 5 euros) and then take the ticket from the machine after the driver has printed it. The ticket will often not make much sense, either in time or details about the stop, but keep it with you just in case you need to produce it.

When you approach your destination, push one of the buttons located along the length of the bus and then exit using the middle doors.
