Bicibus is a service available on line 46 which connects Mantua and Peschiera del Garda, designed for all those who love bike excursions and for cycle-tourism enthusiasts: with Bicibus you can take your bicycle with you thanks to a special trolley pulled by our buses.
The service is available upon reservation from April to October on the 46 Mantua-Peschiera line.
Depending on the routes, on weekdays departures are scheduled from Mantua from the stops of Porta Pradella (Chamber of Commerce), S.Alessio (Piscina) and IPSIA (Borgochiesanuova) while on holidays the departures are all scheduled from the Piazza Don Leoni (all holiday departures); the arrival in Peschiera is always scheduled at the railway station.
The departure terminus from Peschiera del Garda is the only one in via Caduti delle Foibe.
