    Wat is verschil tussen aerobus en stadsbus nummer 199 (behalve de prijs natuurlijk)?
    Wat zijn de voordelen van de pendelbus?

    • Melani   •     Author

      Dear Lm,

      Airport shuttle is a direct bus and local bus makes stops on the way to the city centre, thus it takes more time to get to the city than taking a shuttle bus.

      Best regards!

    Can we get a bus direct to Saló from Verona Airport?

    • Melani   •     Author

      Dear Mandy,

      Unfortunately, there is no direct bus from Verona Airport to Saló. The best way to reach Saló is to take a train from Verona Porta Nuova to Desenzano and then bus line LN027 to Saló.
