Not a difficult task for the first time
traveller, it is surprisingly achievable.
Journey time can
be just over 1 hour, typically just over 2 hours. Cost

have some small denominations with you.
The drivers prefer
exact money. I have always
found them to be honest with change.
OK, your flight has
landed, cleared Customs,
Now head for the sunshine.

then into Palma and onto the busy two lane city centre loop.
Look out for the pink Building

Walk round the back of the building,
looking for the glass topped escalator.

the driver departs.
Son Canals is only a few hundred

but here are pictures of the 2011 times.
I don't think they
will be changed much
As ARRIVA have taken over the route,
I expect they will try to get a return on their investment.
SO EXPECT FARES TO RISE.

The 16:45 from Palma !!!
From Palma, you
use the L211 to Soller bus station, where you change onto the
17:35 L210 coming from Port de Soller going to Palma via Deia
Through ticketing applies, so ask the driver for "DEIA
PAR SOLLER". Give him the 2.60 Euros.
Many drivers forget
about this one quirk of the timetable and try to sell you a
ticket to Soller. But insist!!!
