The 33 bus goes directly from the bus station to the Cathedral on the Gran Vía: it is not necessary to change buses.

The CREDIBUS CARD or BONOBUS costs 5€, 10€ or 20€ plus a refundable fee of 2€. Subsequent top-ups are available for 5€, 10€ or 20€ from the ticket vending machines at the bus stops (see photo on the right). You can pay in cash (coins and notes) or with a credit card.
For top-ups of 5€, 10€ o 20€, the journey costs 0.87€, 0.85€, 0.83€, respectively. The CREDIBUS CARD is a good idea if you are going to use public transport several times during your time in Granada. Several people can use the same CREDIBUS CARD: just swipe the card over the ticket validating machine reader once per person.
