Buses
Bus tickets are NOT sold on board (unless otherwise specified); they can be bought at newsagents and tobacconists. If your trip is not within the urban area, specify your destination.

Once stamped, the ticket is valid for a hour, and in that time you can take as many different buses as you need without buying another ticket.
