Padangbai to Gilimanuk bus

Posted by maristia on 24/6/2018 at 08:05

Hey guys .
I've read on Travelfish that there should be a bus traveling between Padangbai and Gilimanuk.
I couldn't find any details on the web.
Does anyone know which bus it is, how long it takes, time tables, etc?

Much appreciated,

padangbai is very small so should be easy to ask around locally (there are a number of mini van guys near where the fast ferries from the Gilis stop) but I suspect that a direct bus would be one of the inter island ones coming from Lombok and heading to Java so ask around the port

Hi Martin - I’m to blame!

According to the info at Gilimanuk bus terminal (last checked in February 2018) a route runs Gilimanuk—Mengwi—Denpasar—Padangbai, but I suspect you would have to change in Denpasar.

There is also a route Gilimanuk—Singaraja—Kubu—Amlapura. Orange bemos connect Padangbai to Amlapura. You may have to change buses at Singaraja.

Due to traffic, the route across the north coast is possibly a quicker trip.

This info is for the local style minibuses (bigger than a demo, smaller than a coach). They don’t usually run to strict timetables and you may have to wait for connections. It’s a long trip either way.
