Many villages are well connected to each other with the local buses of Lefkada, almost every settlement has a small bus stop. The bus company of Lefkada is called KTEL, which operates with more than 30 modern, well equipped buses with A/C.
Local buses in Lefkada are running primarily on the eastern side of the island, where most of the villages are located. These roads are better for the buses on this side: wider, and less tortuous.
Usually there are two schedules: one for the summer months (from end of May till October), and one for the winter months. During summer months buses run more frequently, adapted to the tourists. From Monday to Friday the schedule is more frequent, at the weekends the buses operate less.
