At least two buses operate from Bari to Palermo. However, the number of buses may increase depending on events in Palermo or during peak seasons. As a result, the number of buses in a week may add up to 12. Therefore, it is usually recommended that you book earlier for your travel, especially if the route has one or two buses in a day. Flexibus, BigBus, and the bus center buses facilitate transportation on this route. The buses offer both layover connections and direct connections on the route. Choose your bus depending on your budget; generally, direct connection buses are more costly than those with layovers.
If you use the Flexibus for your travel, leave your pet at home or assign someone to look after it before you return. The bus does not allow pets onboard, except service pets. A service dog, for example, is a dog that is useful to the physically and mentally challenged. They help in crossing the road, guiding the way, and aiding in reminding a person to take their medication. The people depend entirely on the dogs for their safety. If you take the BigBus, you can carry one pet at most. However, ensure to leash your pet as you board and ensure that the pet is not taller than knee height. The bus center allows small dogs and cats on board as long as they can stay on the owners' lap or in a small cage throughout the journey.

You can take a taxi that will take you 1min, or you may choose to walk through the Guiseppe capruzi for 2 minutes before you get to the Bari town center. If your ticket indicates that you depart from the Porto bus station, you will need to board a metro bus that will take you 10 minutes to the station from the Bari city center. The bus may also take you from Piazza Aldo Moro bus station on its way to Perlamo, depending on your current location in Bari. Finally, you will arrive at the Piazza Cairoli bus station or the PMO station, depending on the final destination as indicated on your ticket.
The buses on the route allow a carry-on bag that does not exceed seven kilograms in weight and must fit on the overhead storage compartments inside the car or under your seat. Anything beyond the minimum weight is charged. You may also carry oversized luggage and extra luggage; however, you will have to pay for your excess luggage as a parcel.
