Gran Canaria Bus service "Guaguas Global" & "Guaguas Municipales"
Airport Transfers, Bus Routes & Timetables, City Buses
First of all: Dont ask in Las Palmas or Gran Canaria for the next Bus or Autobus. In the local vocabulary the bus is called Guagua. The two Gran Canaria Buses lines are the so called Guaguas Municipales (the yellow city bus Las Palmas) and Guaguas Global Bus, the interurban line (blue buses) which are providing also the Las Palmas Airport Bus transfers and Maspalomas to Airport transfers by bus. The Global Buses maintain also all interurban connections in Gran Canaria. Especially the Las Palmas transfers from airport Gran Canaria are very recommondable because they are cheap, reliable and operate frequently (each half hour).
The only problem is: if your destination is far from any bus station or you are arriving in Las Palmas or leaving Gran Canaria after midnight, when no bus transport to Gran Canaria Airport Gando is available (Between 24:00 and 5:00 in the morning). In that case you have to take particular taxi transfer to airport gran canaria.
