Bus from Santa Ana to San Salvador

Hello,

I am reading that Bus #201 will take passengers from Santa Ana to San Salvador and vice versa; however, I couldn't find any details on schedule or pick-up and drop-off locations. Can anyone help with this info?

Thank you!

Here is the link on how to obtain the bus schedule:

The bus #201 is a direct bus , you can either get to San Salvador to the South Terminal or Occident Terminal. I can ask around for the bus terminal address in Santa Ana.

This is fantastic - thank you so much, Marius! Exactly what I was looking for and could not find.

You seem to know a lot about the bus system in El Salvador so I might try asking you another question. I am looking for a round-trip bus service from Guatemala City to San Salvador. There seem to be a few options, and so far it looks like Tica Bus and Pullmantur may be good choices. However, these two only depart twice a day, and I read that the Melva bus has multiple departures daily. However, I can't find any information on Melva - schedule or terminal locations.

So just wondering from your experience if there is one particular company that you would recommend.

Thanks again!

My pleasure Shrug4 ! I've been traveling to El Salvador for past three years, travelled to Guatemala as well.

That is correct Tica Bus and Pullmantur companies offer round-trip bus service from Guatemala City to San Salvador. Also, there is a shuttle from Antigua Guatemala to Playa El Tunco, El Salvador.

In regards to Melva I could not find any info, either. It is possible that they went out of business.

You might want to check Autobuses El Cóndor accessing the below link.

To be honest I used only colectivo buses (chicken buses) or direct buses within Guatemala and El Salvador.

But I heard that both companies Tica Bus and Pullmantur have good service.

I am not sure about the frequency, but we did catch the last bus from Santa Ana to San Salvador as late as around 7 or 8pm.

Personally we enjoyed Santa Ana more than San Salvador. The hike itself easily takes up an entire day (with transit), and another 1-2 days in Santa Ana would be ideal.
