Rhodes Airport Accessibility: Bus? Taxi? Rent-a-car?

---IMPORTANT NOTICE---
THIS POST IS ARCHIVED. UPDATED INFO CAN BE FOUND HERE.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since we received some inquiries on bus routes and taxi prices we think its a good idea to refer to the ground transportation available at Diagoras Airport.

BUSES

The airport is served by RODA, one of the two local bus companies, with a route to the city central bus station via the west coast avenue. The current route is not an express one (which is expected later this season) so it makes various stops (Kremasti, Ialyssos, Ixia some of them).

The airport bus stop is situated on the middle between the old and the new terminal, exactly in front of  a small outdoor coffee shop. (view map).

The city central bus stop is situated on Averof Street, on the back side of the Nea Agora (New Market) landmark building. From there, you can switch to buses heading to the East Coast (Faliraki, Kolympia, Lindos would be some of the east coast destinations), you can go around the building and reach the city buses stop for routes within the city or you can reach on foot (less than 5 minutes) the central taxi rank. (view map)

Below you can find the bus schedule for the Airport-City route and vice versa. The ticket costs € 2.10-2.30 and can be purchased from the bus driver upon embarkment or from dedicated kiosks at the central bus stations. The ride to/from the airport should last 30-45 minutes depending on traffic.

  1. What happened to the car hire section? There are 7 car hire companies working at the airport all year and yet you fail to mention any of them.

    1. A part of the global car rental companies i can suggest also Colossos rent a car. We have rented a car from them and they have delivered the car at the airport without any extra cost. For more information you can log on http://www.colossosrentacar.com

  8. Instead of running after cabs with luggage in your hand, you can have your own driver wait for you at the exit of the airport. Places to visit in Malaysia
