You can arrive in bus to La Garrotxa from Barcelona, Girona, Vic, Figueres, Puigcerda, Ripoll, Banyoles...
At weekends buses run approximately every hour on the main routes, so to move around the county by public transport is complicated by the infrequent service on many routes.
The Transversal Bus runs between the Plains d'Hostoles and Besalú (schedule pdf), but only on weekdays.
At certain times of the year, the line from Olot to Santa Pau, with stops at La Fageda d'en Jordà and at the Santra Margarida volcano, among others, also runs on weekends and holidays ("Bus dels Volcans"). This line allows you to reach the central area of the Natural Park for only 1,75€.
Transport on demand
Clic.cat is a public transport service of the Generalitat de Catalunya that has established routes and timetables but is only provided if requested in advance. To use it, you must first make a reservation and indicate the origin and destination stop of the line you want.
Reservations can be made through the Clic.cat application at least 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time of the first stop of the corresponding line. They can also be done by phone from Monday to Friday on weekdays (8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.). If a place for PRM is needed, it must be expressly indicated at the time of booking.
Through the app, the customer receives real-time information on the position of the vehicle and the time of arrival at the stop chosen in their reservation.
