About the bus and train services on the Costa Blanca
Having used these bus and train services, I can say that they are generally of a high quality and very reasonable price. Obviously they can occasionally be subject to delays and cancellations (rarely because of snow!) but the staff are usually polite and patient.
Buses on the Costa Blanca have main terminals at Alicante and Valencia. The bus company entrusted to supply these services is named 'ALSA', the largest transport network in Spain. You may book your tickets online or pay the driver when you board the bus (it helps if you have correct change).

The Citrus Express is a branch of the Alicante train service supplied by Tram Alicante. It runs from Denia, in the north, to Alicante, in the south. It is an interesting trip taking you through the local countryside you wouldn't normally see from the road.

The Valencia commuter train service begins at Gandia. For day trips, most of my friends drive to Xeraco and use the free parking facility there.
