Just in case family members who are joining me in Leon are feeling a bit jetlagged and want to drop a few km from their first day to La Robla, I'm finding out about the bus that goes from Leon (Avenida Padre Isla, 2) to Carbajal de la Legua. Can you buy a ticket on the bus or do you have to get a card or something beforehand? Any idea how much it costs?
Thanks for your assistance.

My guess is you can get one on the bus. Last year we took a taxi, and as far as I remember, it was about the same cost between two persons. Taxi left us at the point where you can have no doubt about the direction!

Thanks @kirkie that’s a good idea. I’ll be walking but I can imagine the three kids would happily share a taxi with their Daddy;-)

Remember you don't have to walk alongside the road past modern gated subdivisions, the river alternative is just steps away and takes you almost all the way to Carbajal. That makes for a much nicer departure from León. ;)

According to this website, http://fgulem.es/wel/espa%F1ol/Transporte.htm, tickets are .85 € and can be purchased from the driver on the bus.

I would bet the taxi would be around 10 €.

Thanks @peregrina2000 I was planning on the river walk being the first point of difference from my last Salvador (and hoping no rain might be the second!)
Sounds like everyone can choose to take a bus or have a Cornetto that day!

If they are feeling really jet lagged, then they could take a bus to La Seca or even Cascantes...... Again, buy the ticket on the bus, only a couple of euros.

Good to know @Felice We have two nights in Leon when they arrive so they should be OK - and one of the best ways to knock jet lag is to get outside in the sunshine so the 19km from Carbajal is probably what the doctor would order. But I’ll file away your info just in case.
