Big changes to the Limassol bus service

Postby Tim Drayton » Mon Feb 29, 2016 1:02 pm

Anybody who uses the local buses in Limassol probably needs to know that big changes to the service will come into effect as of tomorrow (1 March). In particular, the bus terminus at Agios Nikolaos will close and all of the routes that used to terminate there have been reconfigured. There are new timetables on all of the other routes as well.

To the best of my knowledge, there has never been a direct bus between My Mall and Germasogia.

Germasogia is served by the number 13 route. That used to terminate at Agios Nikolaos. From what a bus driver told me about the changes this morning, the number 13 will now, instead of finishing at Agios Nikolaos, continue to the big roundabout, go along Makarios Avenue and will terminate at the Old Hospital, presumably either going down Agias Fylaxeos or Iannou Tsirou.

I picked up a leaflet from the bus office with the new times, and I see there will be a route number 10 running from Germasogia to the New Hospital, but I have no idea about the route it takes, and it only runs four times a day each way.

Sadly, I can find no information about these changes on the bus company's website.

Announcement here: http://en.limassolbuses.com/?page_id=98 http://en.limassolbuses.com/?p=609
EMEL Ltd, announces that, as part of the route restructuring for the Urban Area in order to upgrade the system for better service to our passengers, approval was finally achieved from the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works. Therefore the new modified routes will be operating from March 1st, 2016 .

Amongst other modifications, the main ones are:

Routes starting from the eastern area of ​​Limassol (No: 12, 13, 25) will now terminate at the Old Hospital Station on Leontiou Str. (instead of Lambros Porfira Str.) passing through Gladstone Street or Makarios Avenue.
For better service to the traveling public of the areas Yermasoyia, Agios Athanasios, Mesa Geitonia, Perioxi Organismou Xrimatodotisis Stegis and Chrisovalantou Kapsalos traveling to the New Hospital, there will be a new direct route to the New Hospital.
Passengers in the Western Area (Episkopi, Erimi, Kolossi and Ypsonas) will be better serviced for the New Hospital and MY MALL with route no. 18 starting from the bus stop St. George in Ypsonas.
Some routes of routes Nos. 4, 5, 7, 14 and 15 both weekdays and weekends will terminate directly in the city center.



Buses 21 and 30 may technically count as serving Germasogia, as both pass through the municipality, though not the village: from the Village take the number 13 and change at the Seafront Road, in the Park Beach area.

I didn't see that, thanks. On reflection, the question about Germasogia-My Mall could well be about the seafront number 30 route given that, as you say, it passes through the Germasogia section of the sea front. That hasn't changed.
