Opinions about Alhambra Buses
Smiling DriversTaking thèse buses has béen one of thé many good surprises during our stay in Granada. Very helpful and smiling drivers (Lavigne).
Good Bus DriversThank you to your bus driver, Ruben, on route 30, bus 142 on Monday, Feb 3. He saved us from a vacation disaster by finding and retu
ing our car keys which we dropped on his bus. He also refused a reward. A truly valuable employee and an excellent representative of your city. Please thank him once more for us!! (Kathleen).
Helpful and patientVery pleased with the helpful and patient bus drivers, thank you from a tourist that doesn't speak Spanish and appreciated their patience.
C30 and C32 have been terrificThe C30 and C32 buses have been terrific. We are tourists and have been very pleased.
I felt safe riding busesAs a lone, older, female traveler I felt safe riding your buses. They were fairly handy for me in my travel around the area, especially since my hotel is only handy to Alhambra on foot. (I'm staying at the Alixares).
Tonight I had a problem with bus#144. I let the driver know I needed off at Alhambra. He did not stop! And I was not getting off at the next stop that was too far for me to walk from and it was dark!
I just stayed on the bus until it was at Plaza Isabela. Then I got off and took a taxi to my hotel.
I don't read Spanish and most of the drivers don't speak much English so I paid full fare each and every time I rode the bus -no benefit of a travel like in Madrid.
Anyway, though you should know. It kind of spoiled my last night here... otherwise I probably would have rated the service 5 star.
(LG: if you take urban buses several times, it is better to buy a travel card, each trip would be 40% cheaper than buing a single ticket).
