About us

Home > About us

We are the third generation of the Russo family who has dealt with transporting Sicilians and tourists who come to Sicily from one point to another on the island.

We have been accompanying people around Sicily since 1936

A real family mission that was started before the Second World War by Antonino Russo to originally connect the Castellammare del Golfo train station to the town centre.

In the 1940s the service was interrupted because of the war, but immediately after the Russians left, we returned on track with the line connecting Palermo to Castellammare del Golfo and San Vito Lo Capo.

Since 1946 our vehicles, including coaches with a capacity of 29 to 55 people, are the reference point for anyone who wants to move along the coast that connects the Sicilian capital to the most beautiful seaside areas of western Sicily.

The direct line between Palermo and Castellammare del Golfo and between Palermo and San Vito Lo Capo is in concession to our vehicles, reconnecting inland areas often forgotten due to the presence of the motorway.

With the tourism boom in Sicily in the 1970s, Autoservizi Russo became a limited company and strengthened its connections on the route between Palermo and San Vito in the summer.

Tourists and locals know that they can find in us the punctuality and professionalism they seek when they want to spend one or more days of vacation in total serenity.

In San Vito Lo Capo we manage the city’s internal mobility, connecting the seaside resort to the other areas of the hinterland.

Where do we take you?

Our starting point is Palermo, the capital city where thousands of tourists transverse throughout the year, where we make several stops to collect tourists arriving from the station, the airport or the city centre.

From Palermo we leave on a daily basis to take you to:

We also advise Sicilians to leave their car at home and enjoy a day out without having to think about parking or speedometers.

Relax in the company of your friends and family and let yourself be taken where you want, for once, leaving all your worries at home.

Bus and coach rentals

Holiday groups that want to move together will no longer have to worry about getting broken up once they arrive in Sicily.

Our fleet is well stocked to offer rental buses with drivers for trips, organised trips, school visits, study groups, religious groups and transfers not only in Sicily but also throughout Italy.

Our drivers are a family for us. We entrust your safety only to the expert drivers who are familiar with both the vehicles and the Sicilian roads.

To always travel safely on board our vehicles we have our own internal workshop for vehicle maintenance that operates constantly to check that every coach is running perfectly and suitable for the transport of people on the road.

Our mission is making you travel with comfort and in peace.

All you have to do is organise your visits to Sicily and plan your dream vacation.

We will take you to your place of dreams.
