Bus Travel Tips
Make friends with the driver. They usually know a lot about your destination and may even recommend which side of the bus to sit on to get the best views on the road between San Jose and Santa Barbara!
Much more than a mere vehicle taking you from San Jose to Santa Barbara, riding the bus will expose you to some of the most stunning panoramas while enroute to your final bus stop.
Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from San Jose to Santa Barbara.
Create your own real life musical score by curating a personalized bus travel playlist - the perfect accompaniment to your bus ride from San Jose to Santa Barbara.
