Tenerife South Airport Buses
The bus stop at the airport is situated outside the terminal, close to the exit from the arrivals hall. There are four daily bus routes and one night route. Titsa operates all these routes, and the information on their website is available in English as well as Spanish. The contact telephone number is (+34) 922 531 300.
Tickets are purchased from the driver on the bus. Return tickets can be bought and give you a 10% discount over the single fares, but the return journey is only valid on the same day.
If you are planning to use the buses a lot, travel cards are available for €15.00 or €25.00 and can be used on all buses (except for the routes to Teide) and the tram routes to and from Santa Cruz. The same card can be used by more than one person. They can be bought on the bus or from Titsa information centres.

Tenerife by Bus
The island's buses are clean, air-conditioned and relatively efficient. You can get to most of Tenerife's coastal towns and resorts by using the bus network, although to circumnavigate the island would involve several changes and take a lot of organisation.
If you are travelling to one of the other Canary Islands via Tenerife, you will need to get from the south airport to the north airport. Bus route 343, as detailed above, provides a direct non-stop service between the airports.
