Between January 2 and April 30, 2018, PeruRail will operate the Bimodal Service (Bus + Train), a service that combines bus and train travel, departing and returning to Cusco City. Passengers using the Expedition bimodal service (Expedition 33) board a private bus at Wanchaq Station, 5 minutes away from Cusco’s historic center, and arrive to Ollantaytambo Station. From here, passengers board the train and head to their final destination: Machu Picchu Station. The return journey is the same in reverse (Expedition 34). For additional information regarding the service and a route map, please click here. Regular services departing from and arriving into Ollantaytambo or Urubamba Stations will not be affected.
