Most Tenerife buses (called guaguas pronounced 'wah wahs' by the locals) on Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain are run by TITSA. These Tenerife buses are very cheap, more comfy than many UK public buses.The Tenerife buses run frequently over the island's main roads. The bus service can be infrequent off the main roads.

Bus routes are called Lineas in Spanish. Buying a pre paid Bono Bus ticket approximately €12 euro for several trips saves between 30 to 50% of the fare, a great money saver.

Bono Bus is a pre paid ticket that allows you to have discount fares on Tenerife buses, the Green TITSA Tenerife buses, as follows:

  • Long  journeys  over  20 km 50% Discount
  • Short journeys under 20 km 30% Discount

The Bono Bus Card is slightly smaller than a credit card. You place the Bono Bus card into a small green machine near the bus driver, and tell the driver your destination. The Bono Bus card is printed with the discounted fare and the balance that is still available to be used on the card.

You can purchase Bono Bus Tickets from bus stations, bus terminals, and various retail outlets, often newsagents, look for the Bono Bus sign above right

Bono Bus Cost

Bono Bus Cards cost either €12.00 or €30.00. Unless you are going on a few long journeys we recommend the lower price card because there is not enough physical room for the printing of a lot of short journeys on the dearer card.

Bono Bus Rules

  • The Bono Bus card can be used by more than one person. Tell the bus driver how many people. You may have to remove and replace the card for each person
  • Valid until
    • either the remaining balance is used up, the card becomes full (room for about 18 journeys)
    • or valid for 1 year.
  • If the balance left on the card is less than the fare the difference must be paid in cash and not another card. A bus ticket is issued for the difference paid


Buy the Bono Bus card from

Bus stations, and other outlets such as newsagents. A leaflet list is available at Tourist information Offices

Or ask locals they nearly all use the Bono bus card. You can't buy them on Tenerife buses.

Tenerife Information Tenerife buses Tips on the bus routes

  • Each bus route (Lineas) has a number such as 473. The same number is used for Tenerife buses running in both directions on the route.
  • Because of one way streets or the layout of the bus routes, you can find that buses for both directions may use the same bus stops, or you may have bus stops several metres apart but on the same side of the road. Can be confusing so double check the bus destination on the front of the bus.
  • The route number and route is displayed on the front of the bus. The route includes where the bus came from and the destination. The lower name is the destination and on some Tenerife buses the lettering is larger for the destination. If you get on the wrong bus the driver will tell you.
  • The English of some drivers is not very good. Spanish pronunciations of destination names can be very different from English ones. Tip write down the destination name before hand and show to driver.
