Transportation from Heraklion to Plakias

by wanderlustig Online Now Mar 19, 2010 at 10:51 AM

Can anyone tell me whether there is public transportation from Heraklion to Plakias? We will be touring Greece in late Sept./early Oct. We have made arrangements to leave our organized tour when we reach Heraklion, Crete (the last stop before we return to Athens). We want to go to Plakias to visit a friend who lives there. Should we rent a car? Is there a bus? Thank you for your help!

    You have to first take a bus from Heraklion to Rethymnon:

    bus-service-crete-ktel.com/t...

    and then another bus from Rethymnon to Plakias:

    bus-service-crete-ktel.com/t...

    based on the fact that generally public transportation in Greece is not very reliable, I would suggest to rent a car. Besides the international chains that operate in Crete (Budget, Hetz, Avis) there are smaller local firms like autocandia and Car Rental Greece (www.carrentalgreece.gr) where you can rent a car for a few euros, and go to visit your friend safely and in comfort.

    The bus from Chania to Heraklion is reliable.

    I agree, the KTEL bus services on Crete are excellent value for money and mostly run to time. Where on earth does someone come up with a comment that is basically incorrect?
