Plan to go in Sept/Oct '16
Hi!

I'll be travelling to Pamplona from Barcelona by train and plan to get a bus to SJDP from Pamplona. I noticed that the distance between the train station and bus station is a 30min walk or a 12 min bus ride.

If I were to take a train that arrives in Pamplona at 1.15pm and then a bus to SJDP at 2.30pm would that be cutting it thin? Any advice would be appreciated!!

If the train arrives on time, and you get the number 9 bus outside the station, it passes very near the bus station, so you should have lots of time, if you can follow the map, or at least have a sense of where you need to go. The 9 bus stops either before or after the side street where the bus station is, so you either walk forward and to the right or backwards towards the bus station. If someone else can answer more clearly, good!

Bus line A caught in front of the train station leaves every hour on the half hour to make two stops and then stops at the bus station. Takes about 15 minutes. Bus line 9 from the same place makes more stops and drops you off very close to the station. Runs every 10-15 minutes. Taxi (maybe share with other pilgrims on the train all the way to SJPdP.) Catch the 15:30 17:30 bus to SJPdP.

Consider also that you need to buy your ticket,. Last time I was in this bus station, queues were long and slow; put aside at least 15 minutes for that.
I vaguely remember there were ticket machines, on the other side.

Are u referring to the bus that goes from the Train Station to Bus Station?

Hmm, do I get the bus tickets from a particular ticket counter? Or do I pay on the bus?

We bought ours online and brought a printout.

The ALSA website in English is at URL https://www.ALSA.es/en/ and the CONDA schedules are incorporated there. Besides getting the schedule CONDA tickets can be bought online ahead of time from the ALSA website as well.

Note: When using the ALSA website to book transportation to St. Jean Pied de Port you must spell out St. in full as Saint or the town will not be found.


From Pamplona you can also take a taxi to Roncevalles or SJPdP. The fare is hefty for one person but the cab can be shared. When you get into Pamplona it is easy to find other walkers (look for backpacks with shells hanging from them.) You could also be on the lookout for them while traveling in the bus or train to Pamplona. Ask them if they would like to share a taxi. Also, if you arrive at the train station you could ask to go to the bus station and maybe find a few others waiting outside that would be willing to fill the cab.

There is also a taxi share service provided by Teletaxi San Fermín that can be accessed online athttp://www.taxipamplona.com/en/comparte.php

The Teletaxi San Fermín fares are roughly in this range:

  • Pamplona to Roncevalles is 60 euros (1 hour)
  • Pamplona to SJPdP is 100 euros (1.5 hours)
  • Add 25% for service for Sundays, holidays or night service (22:00-06:00.)
  • Add 5 euros for transportation from Pamplona's airport.
  • Add 5 euros for bicycle transportation.

First one planned for May 2019: Camino Francés
Would u happen to know how much it might cost?
I met two pilgrims at Pamplona Airport this May and we shared a taxi to the train station in Pamplona, where one of us left. That cost about 10 or 12 Euros. We then continued with the taxi to the bus station and it cost us another 5 or 6 Euros.

Bus costs around 1,20 Euros if I remember correctly.

Yes, I refer to buying the ticket in the bus station. As explained above, you can buy it online. After a cloning of my credit card, I became allergic to shopping online, but that´s just me being odd. :(

Great! Thank you! I'll work that into my budget :)

A sample page with omnio but to be sure you need to input your own date (this is a photo). when you go down on the escalator at the bus station, there are desks, and machines. there are helpful people also. Depending on your language skills, maybe a card with StJean Pied du Port written on it will help, and someone will direct you to the correct section. They will also tell you which stand the bus will leave from.
I think I have exhausted my usefulness to you at this point!9D44EE74-08C6-42AB-B4EB-A692505847B8.png
