The Autobus Turistico is very worthwhile if you aren't a good walker. While it is possible to walk from the train station up into the town and from there all around, Toledo is very hilly and the hills are steep.

The HOHO bus meets each train as it arrives. It is a small single deck bus, but the first stop is the Alcazar. There you can transfer to the double decker for no extra charge. The double decker does the circle of the walled city outside the walls. It has a number of stops at different city gates to go in and visit the sites. I got off at the Puerto San Martin and walked up to the Santa Iglesia Catedral Primada to start my visit.

Walked all over the town from there and then back downhill to the same gate to catch the last HOHO at 6pm back to the train station.

It is very inexpensive, only Euro 5.00 pp. with 50% discount for children and seniors. Infants till 3 years, free. (October 2009)

There are 12 stops on the Blue Route (Ruta 1) and 11 stops on the Red Route (Ruta 2). Only the Blue Route goes to/from the train station, otherwise they are identical.
You can transfer freely between them at all the stops.
Runs every 30 - 45 minutes.

Good recorded audio explanations in 6 languages. Earphones included in the price.

Address: Train station and at all stops
Directions: The bus meets each train just outside of the station.
