No transport directly to o Porrino?

I have been basing my travel plans from Santiago to O Porrino based on Rome 2 Rio as is often recommended, but today when i checked the Renfe and Alsa sites it appears that Rome2Rio was misleading me and there is nothing direct.

It appears I need to get to Vigo and then switch to local bus to O Porrino. Does that sound right to people? Or am I putting it on the websites wrong?

Thanks.
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
That sounds, or seems, quite correct. Bus or Train to Vigo; Bus, Train or Taxi to O Porrino.

Rome2rio was an excellent resource for many years. It is now owned by Omio which is a secondary seller. It will frequently only show routes for which it can sell you a ticket and, sadly, will not always sell you what you need. One of its current offerings will sell you a bus ticket to Redondella. Perhaps they figure that as a Pilgrim you'll be happy to walk from there...
 
Sounds right. There is a very large hill between Vigo and Porrino - been both ways. Have also taken a taxi from central Vigo to family who live a few kms from Porrino (about €30) to start from there.

Routes N-S are easy but E-W are the difficult ones there. You could also consider getting off at Rendondela as it's about the same distance to Porrino as Vigo - allowing for the geography.

Thanks for this update. I refer to it often and now I know why I see lately see some discrepancies sometimes. It is kind of upsetting but not surprising a company would subvert something to further their own profits.
