Since this thread is still useful, here is the link to the updated bus schedule:
since there is a stop at Lajatico, but on Sundays there is only 1 bus in each direction!! Yes, you read that right.... that is why you can't depend on buses in the countryside and need to rent a car :/

Andrea Bocelli 2014
I would like to know if there are other tour operators providing transport to Bocelli's concert from nearby cities (Firenze, San Gimignano, Siena) than Arianna and friends?
Thanks in advance!

Yes there are although it seems that Arianna and Friends, being in the area, have been been really good about organizing service for years now and so they are well organized specifically for transfer to and from various cities in Tuscany. At 60-90 euro round trip, it seems like a good rate.
You should know that practically any tour agency that offers "transfer" services will arrange for you to get there and back without you having to worry about driving or the times the concert ends. But it is a private car/van, you will have to deal with the full cost of the trip while a bus/large van will spread cost among all those using the service.
In any case, I also found these two that organize transfer for the concerts (this year there are two, the classic Bocelli one on the 20th of July and then Ennio Morricone on the 22th.
2. http://news.esatour.it/wp-content/up...-July-2014.pdf - they are offering full packages, with concert tickets and hotel rooms included, but as they also organize transport from nearby cities to the concert, you should contact them and ask whether you can be added. Or at least to see whether they are open to it, and to find out about cost.
Enjoy the concert!!
