It would never occur to me to even try when it so simple to go to the bus station, find the schedule and bus line that suits your needs, and pay right there at the counter where you can also familiarize yourself beforehand with the layout of the place. We always arrive about a half an hour or so early with tickets in hand and seating already picked out. Get our drink and snack before we board and enjoy the ride in comfort.

So you just gave your credit card info to whom? :devil:

The same company if I was inline at the bus station. ;-)


NOW has anyone been successful buying tickets on line? Because I do not have the luxury Rob has has wasting my time going to the bus station ahead of time to buy my tickets.

As we arrive two days before we travel.

Lol....I figured your original question was meaning advance purchase as in "not travelling today", makes total since to purchase online for that. Too bad they won't take the purchase, guess business is tooooo good these Days! Lol

If you are staying at a hotel- most will get the tickets for you. When we stay in Morelia, the B&B and hotels we stayed in would get our tickets for us 1 or 2 days before. By getting them early you had the best chance of getting a good seat.

I have not purchased online, but we did use the bus two years ago to travel to Patzcuaro, via Uruapan. We flew in and had the taxi driver drop us at bus station. From there a taxi to our downtown overnight lodging. We enjoyed the afternoon and evening. The next day we had tickets in hand to taxi to bus. All went smoothly with just an overnight stay. We were very glad we prepurchased our tickets as the bus was full, and on the morning of departure travelers were being directed to other bus lines and options. This method worked for us.

The only way I have ever successfully purchased bus tickets from Autovias online is by using a Mexican debit card (Bancomer).

My US credit cards and debit card are consistently rejected.

¡Suerte!

We tried to pay online with the help of our concierge at our hotel with no success.
They called the bus line and was told that they only take Mexican cards and not Canadian credit cards.
