How do I Check for bus service to/from Pisté and Chichen Itza?
Go to the www.ado.com.mx website to check for first class service. Depending on where you want to go, you will need to use either "Piste" or "Chichen Itza" in the flip down menu. For example Cancun buses dont go to Piste they go to Chichen Itza and Merida buses go to both Piste and Chichen Itza. In other words, if you end up with no bus service in your search for the schedule try a different name location! There are buses in and out of Piste and Chichen Itza EVERYDAY of the year from every major location on the entire Peninsula.
