Roncevalles Bus


Year of past OR future Camino
April 2017 Sarria to Santiago de Compostela
Does any pilgrim have information on the bus from Roncevalles to Pamplona?

I know there is a daily bus that originates from Jaurrieta and picks up at Roncevalles at 0920 and arrives Pamplona at 1030 each day bar Sunday. However the bus website says tickets can only be purchased from one office which seems to be Pamplona. They advise that due to many pilgrims travelling in April one should arrive 1.5 to 2 hours beforehand.

Has anyone used this service? I need to make this journey on April 3 but if I can't be sure of getting a seat it makes my journey problematic.

Any advice will be much appreciated. Gracias.

I caught a bus from Roncesvalles to Pamplona in March a few years back. It originated at Roncesvalles, the bus driver sold the tickets and the bus was mostly empty.

Most pilgrims are taking the bus from Pamplona to Roncesvalles, not the other way.
