Taxi Share 2019 TAXI SHARE Thread Pamplona to Roncesvalles/SJPP

As there are people looking to share on this route I have started a thread for 2019.

It is suggested you contact each other by the Conversation function to make arrangements. To the left of the a post there is the persons name and avatar click either and press the "Start a Conversation" button that appears.

May I also suggest that when you have found someone to share or have made the journey that you delete your post so that only current share offers and requests are on the thread.

All individual threads related to taxis from Pamplona to Roncesvalles and SJPP will be merged into this one so please do not cause the moderators extra work by starting your own thread.

If you are going to give a date which you want to share on please write it as 2nd July 2019 as 2/7/19 or 7/2/19 can be misunderstood by people on different sides of the Atlantic.

The bus line is Autocares Artieda and they have a ticket window in the main bus station in Pamplona. The fare to Roncesvalles was 6 Euros in 2018.
http://www.autocaresartieda.com/?scc=roncesvalles

During the main walking season Alsa bus line runs a daily bus from Pamplona to Saint Jean Pied de Port. The bus leaves Pamplona at 1400 hours and arrives SJPP 1545 hours. It runs every day, including Sundays and holidays, which isn't the case with the service from Pamplona to Roncesvalles. You can purchase the ticket at the Alsa window at the bus station, for €20.

I'm travelling Pamplona to St Jean Pied de Port on 18 April 2019. If anyone is interested to share a taxi charter, please message me using the Forum email service.

(If I travel alone, I'll have to wait for the Conda bus which does not depart until the afternoon. A taxi has the advantage of leaving earlier in the day.)

Hi, Mark....

When looking at transport options from Pamplona to SJPdP, I found this taxi company in Pamplona which specializes in taking pilgrims to SJPdP. You make an online reservation for pickup at your arrival location. During the reservation process, you have the option to select that you are willing to share a taxi with others going to SJPdP, so that the fare is split up. The company will work to schedule a full taxi for you, or assign you to a taxi from someone else's reservation to share.

Hi Mark
Are you firm on the date?
I shall be looking to make the same journey on the 19th , and having used the bus last year would prefer a more comfortable ride. Can't make 18th as need to get over flight from Sydney before setting off.
Regards
Gwyn

Hi Gwyn - Yes my dates are firm.

I'll be using the taxi service recommended by davebugg in his reply above (see http://www.taxipamplona.com/en/comparte.php). This takes the responsibility off me - I figure I'll get at least one sharing passenger, maybe more, and that's good enough for my purposes.

Cheers - m

Mark - I'm also travelling Pamplona to SJPP on 18 April 2019. But first I have to get from Madrid to Pamplona, so I won't be ready for a taxi until late in the afternoon (I haven't figured out how to find the train schedules yet). Have you already signed up on the TeleTaxi site?

Hi LSBPDX
have no idea where you are flying in from to Madrid.
Know from experience that you need to get a good nights sleep before you set off
I am flying in from Sydney to Madrid arriving early on 17th. Will then take the bus to Pamplona.
Overnight for two nights to get used to Spanish time and will head to St Jean on the 19th April if you are interested. In my view going from Airport to Pamplona and onto St Jean the same day a little foolhardy if you intend to start from St Jean the next day. So if you cannot arrange everything for the 18th I shall be probably looking for a taxi share on the 19th if you are interested.

We used this service in sept. 2018. The service was excellent! My sister got motion sickness durng the hilly, windy ride to St. Jean. The driver was very kind and compassionate! He stopped the car let her get out and breathe for a few minutes and then put her in the front passenger seat. He drove very gently the rest of the way! Very verbally encouraging....Really nice driver.

How are you going with getting any passengers for your taxi on the 18th?
I have put out a thread for the 19th but have had no response so far.
Might be possible for me to go the 18th and spend two nights in St Jean instead of two nights in Pamplona to get over the Sydney flight. Tho not my preferred option. Keep me posted.

The taxi company only accepts bookings 60 calendar days in advance, so I haven't yet booked. My understanding is that if I agree to share, it will be pot luck as to whether the taxi company finds other passengers to ride with me. I'm happy to wait and see...

No worries.
I will stay in touch
Thanks for the update.
Any idea of the cost per person although would obviously depend on how many were sharing of course?

Thank you @davebugg for the recommendation. I am looking at this service for May 3. The airline just changed my flights as usual. This may be the only option to get us from Pamplona to St Jean on that day. Do you know if the price changes with more people in the taxi? They do not indicate this on their website.

From memory the full cost of the taxi is EUR 104, so presumably EUR 52 if I find at least one other passenger (the details are on the taxi website if you follow the link in Davebugg's reply to me, go into the "make a booking" option).

There's no reason why you shouldn't consider the afternoon Conda bus: its designed to connect with buses coming up from Madrid. Its run by Conda and bookings are on the ALSA (parent company) website. Like the taxi company, the StJPP schedule and bookings are closed over the Winter.

Thank you! My flight arrival time has been changed to 5 PM, so the bus may not be an option.

Hi from New Jersey, USA
Wish you well on getting a ride share partner.. saw your post and was interest to ask you a question. I plan on going mid Sept and I was thinking going by air to a French destination and then going to SjPdp by rail or bus. In planning your trip did you consider a French city to start your secondary travel to SjPdp? Is landing in Pamplona a better choice considering travel time, convenience and cost? What made you decide to go to Pamplona.
TIA,
Ernie

I have flown into Paris (CDG airport) and then taken a quick flight to Biarritz (BIQ) which was cheap. At Biarritz airport there are several options: taxi, shuttle, train.

My favorite is Express Bouricott They are comfortable, quick to get to SJPdP, the drive is scenic, and the shuttles are usually full so the fare is usually around 20 Euro.

Another option is to look for fellow pilgrims as you are boarding the plane to fly to Biarritz, and again while you are in the Biarritz airport: packs, shells, patches, anxious expressions :). Ask if anyone would like to share a taxi, or if anyone has space available to share a ride. I'm sure you'll have no problem getting a few takers. 🤞

The nice thing, too, is that with either Express Bouricott OR asking fellow pilgrims to share a ride, you start getting to know others who are as excited as you are. I developed a good friendship with someone, after meeting them on the Express Bouricott shuttle, who lives on the opposite side of America as I do, and we stay in regular contact to this day.

hi,
I didn't check all the options. It was a one moment decision, so to ensure that i won't give up I immediatly buy a ticket to Barcelona(203$). it definitely cheaper then flight to any destination in France.
From Barcelona I'm going to take the first train to Pamplona (36 euro .at 07:30) and then the mystery of arriving to SjPdP :).

Hi there,
I'm looking for fellow peregrinos to share a taxi from Pamplona to Roncesvalles either on Apr 15 (I arrive in Pamplona at 3:30 pm) or Apr 16 (preferably earlier in the morning).

I wanted to make a reservation on the taxi page but the site wasn't working correctly for a couple of days. I messaged them about it and they fixed it, but I still can't make a taxi reservation there (I keep getting an error notice when trying to confirm a reservation).

So my plan now is to just find a random taxi driver in Pamplona.:) And someone to share a taxi with, hopefully.

Buen Camino,
Vanja

If the taxi plan does not work out, the bus to Saint Jean is not a bad ride at all and relatively inexpensive. Not sure how many run in March, though.

When starting a 32-35 walk, I never have understood the rush to get to SJPdP. A bus is much less expensive and more relaxing than three or four people and packs jammed into a taxi. The few hours you save will disappear into the Camino one step at a time.;)

While a jet lag recovery day in Pamplona / St. Jean is much to be desired, some of us have time constraints that dictate otherwise.

I had to use the taxi option at the start of my 2018 CF. While expensive, I was working under a time constraint, and needing to start the following day for Orisson, I did not want to wait for the later afternoon bus to St. Jean.

Saint Jean is a lovely little town and a great place to start one's Camino walk. I have been there several times, but if my time was really tight and I was on a strict schedule I would probably simply start in Pamplona. Doing so does not rob one of the richness of the Camino experience. If busing there you reach it fairly early and have time to relax and rest and see the city and quite easy to start off the nest morning. I always strive to walk in a relaxed manner, as they say.
