I'm looking for a reasonably fast and convenient way for a friend to travel by bus from Agios Nikolaos in Lasithi, to Kalives in Apokorona. I find the transport web sites a bit confusing. Do any of the good people of this forum have any advice on this matter they are willing to share. (Apart from "don't even think about it.")

You can get a bus from Ag Nik to Heraklion, cost according to this timetable is €7.10 and takes 90 mins.

Then get another to Chania, which drops off on the slip road from the main highway at Kalyves junction (about 1km outside the town)

Should be about 2 hours 15mins - cost to Chania is €15 so Kalyves should be about €12.50.

Also, as a matter of interest, this KTEL website is searchable and details all aspects of the route you choose and gives you a fare. You can even buy and print out your tickets!! https://www.ktelherlas.gr/en/routes-9
