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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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

Hi, keren, and welcome to the Forum 😁

When looking at transport options from Pamplona to SJPdP, I found this taxi company in Pamplona. They specialize in transporting pilgrims from Pamplona to Saint Jean Pied de Port.

You make your reservation online. You tell them your arrival location for pick up. During the reservation process, you can choose an option stating that you want to share a taxi with others going to SJPdP. The fare is shared by all the passengers. The company will then work to schedule a full taxi for you.

If they already have a taxi scheduled to travel to SJPdP near your time of arrival in Pamplona, and that taxi still has a seat available, they can reserve a seat on that taxi for you.

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 :).

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.

Hello... I am walking the Camino Frances arriving in Pamplona by train on March 27, 2019 around 2:30pm. I plan to take the bus or taxi to St Jean Pied de Port. Would anyone would like to share a taxi and heading that way?
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.

I heard from Pamplona taxi and nobody else has still contacted the company for going to SJPP those days I was told. Not so tempting going by myself and paying 100eur (or 130eur, after 10pm workdays). So if someone out there is interested, feel free to contact me :)

There is still time for reservations by others, so keep your fingers crossed. In the meantime, here is a bus option that is less expensive.

My wife and I arrive Pamplona airport late Oct. 2, will spend the night then plan to book a taxi for the morning of Oct. 3. We prefer not to wait for the afternoon bus.
Please contact me if you can join us and share the cost of the taxi.
There is also the option of reserving a taxi and asking that the reservation be shared by others. One cab company in Pamplona does this.

Milly, looks like there is nobody around to share a taxi. Have you looked at getting a bus? I am not up to speed on timetables, but if you need a hand I could easily research that and let you know what I learn. At this time of the year the question is about the bus timetable. let me know if you would like me to have a look.

Thanks for the offer Kirkie, I believe the buses stopped running on the 20th October. There are 2 of us and we’re ok with taking a cab on our own - just be better if we could share. Will go to the bus station tomorrow and see how we go. 🙏😊

I have not found any bus due to go tomorrow. I also just checked blablacar but they have no drives either. Looks like your taxi will be fairly roomy! Buen Camino to you both.

Hi Millie,
You are correct that the buses have stopped for the season already! I spent some time researching this and options when organising my start from SJPP next week.
Buen Camino pilgrim!

Taking a taxi from Pamplona to Saint Jean on 2 NOV. Time is flexible as we arrive to Pamplona in the morning. Anyone that wants to share the cost (there are two of us) split equally among the total, PM me.

Take bus Pamplona to San Sebastian. Take Renfe train from San Sebastian to Irun. Take Metro Donostealdea from Irun to Gare d'Hendaye. Take SNCF train from Hendaye to Bayonne and Bayonne to SJPdP.

It probably works better if you travel to San Sebastian and Irun from wherever you are landing in Spain instead of going via Pamplona.
