Tenerife Public Transport Information

The key to independent exploration on Tenerife and finding the beaches, village trails and hidden away haunts worth seeing is the local bus network. It’s easy to do, fun and cheap.

The unfortunately named TITSA bus company (Transportes Interurbanos de Tenerife SA) operate a surprisingly comprehensive network of routes covering most of Tenerife, including an airport transfer bus from the southern airport to the resort areas.

Get a prepay TITSA ‘bono’ card and the island is your oyster. Available from main bus terminals and a few other select outlets, the prepay card (€15 or €30) gets you up to 50 per cent discount on any journey over 20 kms, plus free admission to several museums in the capital, Santa Cruz, which makes most journeys cheaper than a pint of beer.

A modern tram service also operates between Santa Cruz and La Laguna. More tram links are in the pipeline – watch this space.
