I’d like to travel from Nagoya to Matsumoto with a brief stop to Komagatake Ropeway (in one day) using Shoryodo Bus Pass (Matsumoto-Magome-Komagane Course). I have a question concerning bus ticket reservation from Komagane IC to Matsumoto IC on the Nagano-Iida line bus. Can I make the reservation for this route in advance at Meitetsu Bus Center? Or is there a ticket window at Komagane IC bus stop where I can make a reservation?
Thank you for your question.
Using the Shoryudo buss pass, you cannot make reservations for the bus in advance as there is no ticket window at the Komagane IC bus stop and you can’t make reservations for the bus at the Meitetsu Bus Center. Show your pass to the bus driver and he will let you on if there are open seats.
I hope that helps answer your question. Let me know if I can help with anything else.
Thank you for your response.
According to the Guide Book of the Shoryudo Bus Pass, the Nagano-Iida line requires a seat reservation. Are you certain that the driver will allow me to get on the bus without a reserved ticket? I just want to make sure that this plan is doable.
The seats on the Nagano-Iida line are reserved, but you can still board the bus without a reservation as long as there are open seats available. You shouldn’t need an advance reservation to board the bus.
I hope that helps.
Thank you very much.
