The area is well connected by bus both with Palma, the capital of Mallorca, and the rest of the island. In this guide you will find all the information regarding Can Pastilla?s bus routes.
There are two bus companies that offer routes in Can Pastilla. Firstly we have the local EMT buses that run between Can Pastilla and Palma, the Playa de Palma and El Arenal, and then the TIB coaches that connect the area with the rest of the island.
The TIB coaches link Palma with the rest of island and normally leave from the Estación Intermodal in Palma (the bus, train and underground station) but there are some lines that have stops in Can Pastilla:
- Coach 210. Destination: Valldemossa. A bus leaves from the Hotel Linda every week day at 9.15 am and returns from Valldemossa to Can Pastilla at 1pm. If we prefer to return later, we can get a bus from Valldemossa to Palma and then from the Plaza España take the EMT bus 15 or 25 to Can Pastilla.
-Coach 454. Destination: The Caves. Runs from Monday to Saturday at 9 am, 10 am and 11.30 am, the coaches return at 1.45pm and 4.10 pm.

LOCAL BUSES (EMT)
The local (EMT) buses are blue; they link Can Pastilla with Palma, Playa de Palma and El Arenal.
A local bus ticket will cost you 1.50?, but you can save money by buying a tourist card with 10 trips on it.
The card costs 10? and is not rechargeable, but it has the advantage that more than one person can travel with the same card. You can buy them in tobacconists and paper shops.

The best way to get to Palma from Can Pastilla is on bus 15 that runs every 10 minutes daily. The number 15 is the best option for getting by bus to the cathedral as its last stop is in the Plaza de La Reina right by the Palma?s beautiful cathedral.
If you are in Palma and would like to visit Can Pastilla, you can also take the number 25 (goes direct from the Plaza de la Reina, using the motorway) but you need to bear in mind that this bus?s first stop is by the Hotel El Cid, right at the end of Can Pastilla, depending on where your accommodation is it?s not worth catching this bus.
Bus 23 also has its first stop in Can Pastilla by the Hotel el Cid, and unfortunately it doesn?t have any stops in the centre of Palma. So if for example we are by the Cathedral, to catch this bus we must go as far as Calle Eusebio Estada, right next to Plaza España.
