Alternatively, you can catch the public bus (Trans Sarbagita) from the airport. The main problem with this bus is there are only 6 buses during the day. So expect long waiting times for it. Tickets cost €0.21 (IDR 3500) and it will go straight to Kuta.

There are no timetables for the Teman Bus services. Trans Sarbagita Airport-Kuta Bus departs at 10.45, 12.45, 14.45, 16.45, 18.45 and 20.45.

Where do I catch the bus from?

Look for the big blue Trans Metro Dewata bus stop located just outside of the Domestic Gate terminal.

Convenience

Even when you catch the Trans Metro Dewata bus to Sentral Parkir Kuta. You still need to catch a taxi or walk to your hotel, as Sentral Parkir Kuta (Kuta Central Park) is a long way from Kuta Beach and popular hotels. Furthermore, as there are no timetables, you can’t be sure that there will be a service departing around the time you arrive.

Editor’s Note

This is a super cheap option for those on a budget, however, the service is unreliable and the lack of timetables makes its difficult to plan your transfer in advance. Taking a taxi or private transfer is inexpensive and comes with much less hassle.

Useful Tips

Remember to validate your ticket using the machine on the bus.
There isn't much space for luggage on these services.
