•Bus: The Almería Airport buses pick up travelers from outside the arrivals terminal and offer service to the Almería town center every 50 minutes. The service starts in the early morning and ends at night (schedules will vary on weekends). For the specific schedule and fares consult the bus company's Official Website. Service is also offered with the ALSA bus company for long distance trips.
