This route will continue with Monbus. It might not operate for the next few days since this change seem to have happened very fast and they had no plan b ready... My guess that over the next few days/weeks, we will know the new hours that Monbus will operate the Santiago airport to Lugo route.

The same is true for the airport bus in Santiago by the way... this route is now taken over by the number 6 bus, but will most likely be back as normal (with another company) shortly.

The new buss station in Santiago opens in March.

Thanks Ivar. Will Monbus to airport still leave from Praxa de Galicia? Where will the new bus station be located?

Look at that! Can you believe it's Santiago de Compostela?
The new bus station will be merged with the train station!
Actually it will be on the other side of the train station.
Quite a walk from the Cathedral... 1700 m (20-25 min)

First one in 1977 by train. Many since then by foot. Next one ASAP.
They did... but MonBus will take over this route as well. As far as I read Freire will no longer do these routes nd only do bus service for school children. The Santiago to Lugo route was theirs for 75 years until today.

Various ones.
It might make life easier for me and people in a similar situation who fly into Santiago then travel out to their start point like I do hopefully in June, it gives us the option of going for either bus or train if transfer times are tight..

If I were to bus into SdeC from Lugo this coming September (a real possibility) would I be deposited at the old bus station of the new bus station?

That is one heck of a station. Where are all those glamorous young women in slinky black dresses going? They look like they're part of the pre-pandemic Manhatten cocktail scene. 😂
