Details:

  • Full Name: Expreso Internacional Ormeño S.A
  • Coverage: Coastal Peru and inland to Cusco and Puno; various international destinations
  • Website: http://www.grupo-ormeno.com.pe/

Brief History:

Ormeño was founded in September 1970, making it one of the oldest existing bus companies in Peru. The company began its first international route in 1975 with a scheduled service between Lima and Buenos Aires.

In 1995, Ormeño entered the Guinness Book of World Records for having the world’s longest scheduled bus route: Caracas, Venezuela to Buenos Aires, Argentina, a distance of 6,002 miles (9,660 km).

Ormeño Domestic Coverage:

Ormeño has excellent coverage along the coast of Peru, but inland destinations are limited to the southern cities of Arequipa, Puno and Cusco. Ormeño serves major destinations all along the coastal Pan-American Highway, from Lima along the north coast of Peru until the border with Ecuador, and south as far as Tacna and the Chilean border.

Ormeño International Coverage:

Ormeño serves more international destinations than any other Peruvian bus company. Destinations include:

  • Ecuador: Quito and Guayaquil
  • Colombia: Cali, Bogotá and Cúcuta
  • Venezuela: Caracas
  • Chile: Santiago
  • Argentina: Buenos Aires
  • Bolivia: La Paz
  • Brazil: Sao Paulo

Comfort and Bus Classes:

Ormeño offers three classes of bus: Royal Class, Business Class and Económico (economy class). The more luxurious Royal Class is comparable to top-end buses used by rival companies such as Cruz del Sur. The company’s economy class buses are comfortable, but have more in common with midrange companies such as Movil Tours.
