Bus from Pisa Airport to Lucca

Hi

Does anyone know if the following from a post a few years back still applies now, I've never been to Italy before and want to be well prepared if possible :-)

"as you exit the baggage claim/immigration hallway in the Pisa airport, turn right and proceed - not far - to the end of the room and you'll find the ticket window for the bus. After getting your ticket go out the first exit to which you'll come and head straight across the parking lot to the Lazzi bus stop. The ticket seller will tell you when the next bus leaves for Lucca. The Lazzi (big, comfortable motorcoaches) buses are blue and have luggage storage underneath for your big stuff so that you don't have to lug it onboard (as you must on the train). The bus ride is then a scenic, pleasant thirty-minute ride to Piazzale Verdi, which is indeed inside the walls"

Appreciate anyones help

Most of that thread is still valid with the exception of; the buses now depart from the right hand side of the car park, the bus company is called VAIBUS (still blue) and the journey takes approximately 45/50mins:

Do make sure that you validate your bus ticket in the yellow machine which is situated by the driver.

You're most welcome, you don't say when you will be visiting Lucca but it's been very hot here for the last 10 days!

The buses on Sundays run on a different timetable, you need to look under E3 pdf "orario festivo"

Thanx Mesh, you are very helpful. Do you know if it takes long normally after landing? I have 40 minutes after landing before the bus leaves.

Hi Marloes34, sorry cant be of much help as we always drive from the UK to Lucca, though our daughter flies over to spend some of the holiday with us (we bring her luggage for her). She seems to get through very quickly with just hand luggage.we have used the bus to/from Pisa airport for her arrival and departure.

Hope someone else will be able to give more appropriate information?

Mesh, i have one question more. The timetable you mention above is different from timetable of Vaibus itself pisa-airport.com/downloads/orari_2013-2014_l…

Do you have any idea which one is correct? Vaibus says there is a bus on Sunday at 15:40 but other timetable says not ...

Marloes,

That timetable is from 2013-2014. Use the current one Mesh gave you.
