2020 updated information on Oltursa buses, their routes, and schedules. Discover all of the information you need to know before booking your bus ticket below.
With over 30 years experience of operating buses in Peru, Oltursa is a renowned, innovative and secure bus operator. With good customer service and quality buses, Oltursa has been Peruvians’ favorite bus operator to travel around the country in different cities from north to south. They are well known for introducing semi-bed seats, double-decker buses in Peru. In 2010, they were awarded prizes for their innovation in security and quality in service. But, for a couple of years now, they have been knocked off the top-spot with the new service, Peru Hop.
Oltursa operates a wide range of buses:
HOW TO PERU QUICK TIP: Peru Hop has been voted the #1 bus company in all of Peru on TripAdvisor for the 5th consecutive year.
Oltursa has invested substantially in its bus fleet, incorporating new GPS systems and making separate entrances for bus drivers and passengers. However, this was not enough in stopping thieves in hijacking an Oltursa bus service from Lima to Arequipa in August 2016. This resulted in 51 passengers being robbed and has damaged Oltrusa reputation significantly. Tourists have since been exploring other options: Peru Hop is a good alternative, as it is a more secure and friendly bus service operating all over south Peru.
Oltursa covers various routes in Peru, from the North, Centre and South. It covers cities such as Arequipa, Chimbote, Chiclayo, Cusco, Ica, Huaraz, Piura and more. Check out all of Oltursa’s bus schedules and routes on their website.
Definitely on some routes, especially north and central (Lima to Huaraz, Chiclayo, Trujillo and so on). However, we recommend on booking with Peru Hop if you are planning to travel through the south of Peru!
