Buses at Goa Airport
Buses are a cheap but a time consuming way of transferring from the airport.
Buses here tend to arrive randomly and any schedules should be looked upon lightly. It is wise to have an idea of locations between the airport and the final destination before arriving at the airport as it is hard to plan ahead.
Asking the bus drivers, other people, using maps are the best ways to know if the bus in question will take you closer or further away from your destination. Aim for larger locations and popular hubs on the way. Google maps may be of help, but it’s not 100% reliable as bus drivers here may not always stick to the schedules.
Taking it one leg at a time is recommended.
The airport does not have a dedicated bus shelter and there is no information displayed about the next bus, times and destinations.
Bus frequencies are generally better during the days than during evenings and nights. During the days it’s possible travelers will only have to wait for 15-20 minutes, but during other times there might be no bus service or very far between arrivals/departures no matter whether it is a local, private or government bus.
Also, be advised that not all buses have room for bigger luggage like check-in bags.
Bus fares are usually cheap starting at 10 INR and upwards and the fare to Panjim, the state capitol, tends to be around 200 INR.
