    According to Rick Steves' website:
    "By car, circle north from Venice and drive the breathtaking Grande Strada delle Dolomiti, or Great Dolomite Road (65 miles: Belluno–Cortina d'Ampezzo–Pordoi Pass–Sella Pass–Val di Fassa–Bolzano). In the spring and early summer, passes labeled "closed" are often bare, dry, and, as far as local drivers are concerned, wide open. Conveniently for Italian tour operators, no direct public transportation route covers the Great Dolomite Road. "

    I took a quick look and didn't find any public bus that does all of these. However, note that there are (plenty of) buses to all of these places, just not along the Great Dolomite Road. I also assume (I haven't looked) that based on Steves' remark that there are tour operators who do offer such a ride (for more money, of course).
