I came across this in El Correo Gallego / Santiago in my morning reading. It is in Spanish, but your browser should be able to translate it - or use one of the online translator engines. It is not long.


The gist of the article is that the Concello and Tussa (the municipal bus operator) are splitting the #6 line into two separate routes.

L6 - (Current Route) Will continue the traditional route from Oz Tilos to San Marcos, with some service tweaks to benefit the local residents. - IT WILL NOT GO TO THE AIRPORT.

L6A - NEW - Will operate from to the airport and back. It is intended to service the new train/bus station and the airport - PERIOD. The article is not clear on whether or not the new 6A airport bus will have other stops besides the new bus/train station and the airport.

The planned frequency would continue to be twenty minutes, but with the aim of ensuring that no passenger remains behind for lack of space, as is currently happening.

I do not have a date certain for this service change - stay tuned.

Hope this helps.

Sounds so complicated now. I think I will do what I always do when I don't know what to do, or am too lazy to try to figure it out. I will go to the tourist or pilgrim office and have someone hold my hand and tell me what to do when it is time to go to the airport. Hopefully when I am there I may meet some other pilgrims who are going to the airport when I am going and we can split a taxi. Problem solved haha

The new 6A bus is up and running. Frequency will be about the same as last airport bus, but there are many more stops, so expect the trip to take longer. Price is a mere 1€ (Gronze says the previous airport bus was 3€).


Schedule and route available here (people going TO the airport want the Traxecto de Volta (return) schedule, which is the second screen shot.

Hello, I am scheduled to arrive in Biarritz by plane on Tuesday, October 18 at 10:40am. Anyone interested in sharing Express Bourricot to SJPD around that time? Pat
