Bus Schedule for Imabari to Onomichi 2017/10/10 14:33
Greetings,
I've planned to bike from Onomichi Station to Imabari Station. I've heard such spectacular things, but I'd like to return my bike at Imabari Station and just take a bus back to Onomichi Station. I saw the post, "Bus from Imabari to Onomichi", but the links only take me to Japanese language sites that I can't translate to english. Would someone please help me out and let me know the bus schedule from Imabari Station to Onomichi Station and where to catch the bus at Imabari Station? If there's any transfers, could you please provide me with those details? I've been searching the web for a long time and haven't been able to find much info, other than there's only three (3) buses that run from Imabari to Onomichi.
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
Cheers,
Erica

I think the three buses you referred are the express buses that can carry your bicycle. There are more buses if you don't need to load your bicycle and don't mind a transfer (change of bus).

Bus schedule: http://www.s-leading.co.jp/section/bus/rosen_io2.html

Above schedule is in Japanese, but here is how to read it:
The first table is for Imabara-to-Innoshimaoohashi (the In-no-shima Bridge), and the first column is departure time at Imabari Pier (6:15, 7:10, etc.). The second column is departure time at Imabari Train Station (6:20, 7:15, etc.). The third column is arrival time at the Bridge (7:10, 8:05, erc.). The second table next to the first shows the schedule from the bridge to Onomichi station (depart at 7:20 and arrive at 7:58, etc.). The run with a big solid dot indicates Sunday and holiday schedule. The bus with a funny-looking asterisk does not run from Jan 1 to Jan 3.

The fare is 2250 yen.

The express bus that carries your bicycle (3 runs per day) costs the same and looks like no transfer is required.

Just wanted to say thank you for this as well. We are in Onomichi and doing the same route so this has helped us plan our way back much better!

Hey I plan on doing the same trip in a few days, do you need to reserve tickets/seats for the bus or can you just show up and get on? And is the price you said for each bus or for the two (to get back to onomichi)?

-thanks
