• A friend of mine took the midnight bus from David to Panama City back in 2015.  The policy then was a ticket can be reserved a maximum of 24 hours in advance. 

    And if the midnight bus fills up, they run a 1:00 AM bus.  If that fills up, a 2:00 AM.  The night my friend traveled he had to take the 3:00 AM bus.

    • Does that midnite bus from the terminal leave precisely at midnite or at 11 or 11:30pm? Anybody know.....Or do I have to drive down there twice?

      • If its full they will leave early.  They tell you to be there an hour before the departure time.

  • Purchase early during the same day of travel. Don't wait until one hour before the bus departs. They do NOT sell in days in advance at the terminal window. I tried it one time. They might now days but I doubt it. I don't know about travel agents either. PanaChief has a new terminal one block on the left before you turn right for the main terminal. Maybe check with them. I don't know their policies.

  • The only way that I am aware of for making a reservation on the bus is to book the travel through Anavilma's travel agency.  Most people just show up a little early and buy tickets.  Sometimes on and around holidays, two buses are used because of the demand.
