Bus
In summer buses leave Fira every half-hour for Oia. Monolithos, Kamari and Perissa.  There are less frequent buses to Exo Gonia and Perivolos Beach. In summer the last regular bus to Fira from Oia leaves at 11 pm.
Buses leave Fira, Kamari and Perssa for the port of Athinios an hour to 11/2 hours before most of the ferry departures. Buses for Fira meet all ferries, even late at night. It is wise to check port departures well in advance.

A cable car hums smoothly (every 20 minutes 6.30 am to 11 pm june to Agust) between Fira and the small port below, known as Fira Skala, from where volcanic island cruises leave.
Less frequent services operate outside the peak season. You can make a more leisurely, and aromatic, upward trip by donkey.

Car and Motorcycle
Acar is the best way to explore the island during season, when buses are intolerably over – crowded and you’re lucky to get on one at all.
Be very patient and cautious when driving – the narrow roads, especially in Fira, can be a nightmare. Note that Oia has no petrol station, the nearest being just outside Fira.
