Take a local bus called Bison to head to Probolinggo for about IDR 35.000 per-person, the bus accomodate 25 passenggers sometime you need to wait long enough until the bus full of passengers or the bus will not take you. Arriving to Bayuangga Bus Terminal you need to change transportation  by bus head to Banyuwangi. The first thing you need to keep remember thet "There is no direct bus Probolinggo-Banyuwangi", even the driver said so and the bus sign it will be a direct bus.

Probolinggo - Jember
Tell the driver that you will go to Jember, even they will tell you that their bus will go directly to Banyuwangi. I had a bad experience that the driver just drop us at Jember Bus Terminal and decide not take us to Banyuwangi as we deal before. We need to wait for more than 1 hour to take next bus to Banyuwangi. We complaint to the officer but they could do nothing, feel sorry we lost our money due to we need to pay extra for the next bus. Probolinggo - Jember is about IDR 30.000 per-person and make sure you get your backpack with you, do not ever put your backpack in the bus bagage.

Jember - Banyuwangi
Bus heading to Banyuwangi cost around IDR 30.000 per-person, the route was really terrifying. Hilly road with curve dominated by big car, when we were in the bus 3 times car accidents occured, sometimes the bus will get engine problem. Totally will take 6-7 hours from Probolinggo to Banyuwangi, but we took 9-10 hours and finally we arrive very late in Banyuwangi due to the engine problem of our bus.

Note :
The bus will stop at the bus station in Banyuwangi city centre namely Brawijaya Bus Station, it will not go to Ketapang ferry. You could take bemo or ojek to find accomodation to stay along the night.
