God Willing as a part of our overall plan my wife is suppose to meet me at the end of my Camino in SdC (and we both then will continue onto Finisterre)
Try as I may i cannot find if there is a public transportation from SDC Airport into the town.
If I do Google directions - it tells me she has to WALK for 20 mins before getting to the bus stop and I find that hard to believe!
Is there a bus stop in the Airport proper, and if so where is it and where does it drops one off in town?
Many thanks in advance

There is a bus at the entrance to the arrival area. The bus goes to the centre of Santiago and stops at plaza de something, just next to the historic center of Santiago. It is 3 euros.

Used to be Plaza de Galicia, probably still is. Spanish airports generally (e.g. Madrid, Bilbao, Barcelona as well as Santiago) seem to be very good at providing a cheap, easy to use bus route from the nearest city centre to the airport.

This is an article from a local paper. It is essentially saying that the buses (Route 6) now go every 20 min but the journey is a bit longer, 45 min. Cost 5 euros.

They do like you to have change for the bus. My husband had to borrow some change from another pilgrim because he only had bigger bills a few years ago. He says at that time it was 3.10 euros or something similar. He had to borrow the small change.

As mentioned you need change but very easy. It's right outside the airport doors.

There are machines there that you can buy tickets from. If I remember rightly, you can use debit or credit cards to buy bus tickets.

I booked a taxi through booking.com for 18 euros. They track your flight for delays too. I just wanted to get to my accommodation early evening to rest up for the start of my walk to Finisterre the following morning.

Taxi is basically "last option" however not totally dismissed and on the backburner "just in case"
I\we do prefer public transportation where possible
Thanks everyone for your inputs - seems there IS a bus right outside the terminal, hopefully there will be ticket machines there as well if not - the latest price seems to be 5E so we'll make sure she's got a proper note :) and if it drops at Pl Galizia - got only couple of blocks before our hostel!
All works for me 👍

You can catch a bus direct from the airport but for her peace of mind a cab ride to where you are meeting may be the best choice.

The bus (6A) fare from the Airport to Plaza de Galicia costs 1 euro. You can pay the bus driver as you board the bus.

How about going the other way on a Sunday? I seem to be looking at the wrong thing and rome2rio says to take Monbus and Monbus schedule says it doesn't run on weekends. What's the name of the local 6A bus company?

Ivar posted the schedule link in post number 3. It runs on Sundays and holidays every 30 minutes.

Thanks. I tried that but cannot understand where to find the schedule from the city to the airport. I will try again.... I see my screen is small and I missed the schedule, but still am not sure about it. It says on Sundays it departs from the airport in the morning and leaves every 30 minutes, as you say but then it says it departs from San Marcos and leaves every 30 minutes. According to the explanation of the route, San Marcos is the the first stop after the airport. Or maybe I am reading this incorrectly?? Why does it say San Marcos instead of Horreo or Intermodal?

As a general rule, I have found that European airports have excellent bus or metro connections to the city. Canadian airports, however......
