Busing from Santiago to Sarria

Camino(s) past & future
Camino Compostela 2016

hi Folks, my first post here.. Due to knee injury I had to quit my Camino four a month so I'm now running out of time for this journey.. I'm in Santiago at the moment and I want to at least do some of the Camino I set out to do.. my question is.. Can I catch a bus from Santiago de Compostela to Sarria and begin my walk from there? After this
I am going to walk from Santiago to Finestere with my cousin.
I'd really appreciate information you could share about the buses to Sarria.
Thank you for reading my post
Louisa

Empresa Freire operates buses from Santiago to Lugo.

Monbus operates buses from Lugo to Monforte de Lemos via Sarria.

Sometimes it works better to go via Monforte de Lemos instead of Lugo. Monbus operates buses from Santiago to Monforte de Lemos.

In April this year, I had to pull the plug on my walk from Madrid at Sarria due to joint pain, and incessant rain. I took the exact trip in reverse, Sarria - Lugo - Santiago. Of course, after 12 straight days of rain and wind, the sun came out as I exited the Estacion de Autobuses at Santiago...go figure...:eek:

The trip, via Lugo can take about two hours, assuming a decent connection at Lugo. I recommend making reservations, then taking an afternoon bus from Santiago to Lugo, then to Sarria. There is frequent service, as depicted above.

Monbus is the bus company on these routes. Their web site is monbus.es. They do not have mobile app that I am aware of.

I hope this helps.
