bus-times Kalamata Stoupa

The above timetable is very approximate. Allow at least 15 minutes leeway either side of each arrival time.



  1. Can I get the bus at Kardemyli and get off at Tseria? We aim to walk down , across the gorge, up to the hotel at Exchori and back to Kardemyli? Would that be possible?

  2. Hello, Do you know if the 10:30 express bus from Athens arrives in Kalamata in time to catch the 13:00 bus to the Mani? Thank you

    • Hi Sandra
      I’m afraid the Express takes 2hrs, 45mins, so you miss the connection by just 15 minutes. Crazy.

    Hi We are planning to get the bus from Stoupa to Kalamata tomorrow – the 9:55am. Do we just pay on the bus? Is it then safe to book the 12pm Kalamata to Athens express online… will that give enough of a margin? Also are there child fares and adult fares? thanks

    • Hi
      Yep, just pay on the bus. You will arrive in Kalamata with plenty of time to sort out your online booking. I have never used this service though- I usually phone to book seats which requires you to be there half an hour prior to departure- which you will be. KTEL Bus Service- 27210 28581 if you want to phone. I do not think there is a reduction for children I’m afraid.

  4. Hi! We are staying in Kardamilli. We are wondering when the busses go from here to Kalamata, and back. Thank you!

  5. We are in stoupa and need to head to diros tomorrow. Is there any bus from stoupa to diros or near diros we could take?

    • Hi
      The local bus terminates at Oitylo- a good 20 minute drive from the caves. I’m afraid I have no information on possible connection times. Oitylo is a very small place, so there may not be taxis waiting. I would recommend a taxi all the way.

    Hi. Does the bus run from Kalamata Airport?

  7. I’m not sure that you can get down into the Gorge from Tsiria . Even if you can it would be a killer walk/climb . Slightly easier would be from the Gorge hotel down into the gorge and then follow it down into Kardamyli – Still a tough walk –

    • Hi Nick
      You can get to the gorge from Tseria via a wonderful kalderimi. Its not an ‘easy’ walk but fantastic

  8. Hi, roughly how much is the bus fare from Stoupa to Kalamili Please?

  9. Vincze Zsuzsanna says:

    Anybody knows how much the ticket cost from Kalamata for example to Kardamili or agios nikolaos? thank you

  10. Hi,
    We are hiking in Mani, we are going to end our trip in Areopoli. Does any bus exists from there to kalamata which doesn’t passes by Sparti?
    Thank you!

    • Hi Elena
      The only way to do what you want is to get to Oitylo where the bus to Kalamata originates. Oitylo is only a 10-15 minute taxi ride from Areopolis.

  11. As a regular visitor and user of the somewhat depleted bus service,experience tells me that these times are ONLY APPROXIMATE. Running late is one thing but they can also run EARLIER than expected, thanks to the odd driver who decides to turn back before reaching the terminus, especially in the upper villages, but that can affect the whole itinerary. Be at the bus stop before the expected time, even if you have to wait longer.

  12. I am planning to travel from kalamata to ag. nikolaos tomorrow with the ride departing at 13:00.
    Where is the stop in Kalamata?
    Can I still buy the ticket on board in covid times? Thank you

  13. Hello, sorry if I am posting this twice (I thought I had, but now I don’t see the message) but please can you tell me if buses are running in lockdown and if times are changed? Thank you
