Buying Kyoto Bus Pass using IC Card 2023/5/16 12:10
Hi.

Can I purchase Kyoto One Day Bus Pass by paying with my IC card (PASMO, ICOCA etc)?
If yes, possible at both the vending machines and the counters?

Tq, Mel

I might be wrong - but I think the Kyoto bus pass is a physical ticket.

they terminate the selling. the last day of the selling is September 30, 2023.
they want to reduce visitor's bus ridings, because of so many complaints that buses are so crowded and local people can't use them.
over-tourism.

I wonder how it reduces these bus rides - hardly tourists will then use taxis or walk long distances... Kyoto subway with 2 lines is not useful. Bus pass was a very handy option, but now need just to use other payment methods.

Exactly, Ifm still going to take buses but using IC card instead. I guess there may be some reductions for short rides. Since whenever Ifm on a transportation pass I jump on the public transport even for just a stop. Will walk more without it. 😬
