How to get to the Camino routes starting points - Here’s a complete guide on how to get to the starting points for each of the Caminos

Camino Frances
Saint Jean Pied de PortTo get to this French city the best option is coming from Pamplona. You can get to Pamplona by plane, public transport or private car. Once you get to Pamplona you should take the N-153 to Saint Jean Pied de Port without leaving this road; also called D-933. You can also get there by bus thanks to Conda Bus Company. You can also get to Saint Jean Pied de Port coming from San Sebastián, San Juan de la Luz and using the GI-120 up to its link with the AP-8...

The French Way is the first one listed, Camino Frances, that can start from St Jean Pied de Port, Roncesvalles, Pamplona, Pedrafita, or Sarria.

I worded that wrong. I meant the sections of the Camino that are in France ie Le Chemin de Saint Jacques....

In the overview of "How to get to Camino starting points" there is a sentence: "There are lots of buses that go to Santiago and Lugo that stop in Sarria.." AND YET, I have been unable to find a bus or train, direct or indirect from Sarria to Santiago. I would like to go from Sarria to Santiago on June 11. I did find one lead that was helpful: Monbus elsewhere on the forum that has a daily 7AM bus but tickets can't be purchased on-line. Anyone who has different leads, I would be most appreciative. I did try Trainline, Renfe and Omio with no luck: they claim to have transport but no matter what day I enter, they say no transport found.

If you are wondering why I am needing transportation in that direction, it is because after completing Camino portugues from Porto, I am taking a bus to Ponferrada to walk the section that I missed to Sarria (due to injury) when I walked the Camino frances years ago. I have already walked from Sarria to Santiago and don't want to do it again at this time. Thanks so much for your input.
