Sorry as I know this will have been asked many times... Biarritz to SJPDP

Planning to walk the Camino Frances in September 2019
I humbly apologise in advance but I have looked at the train times and I am not sure exactly what I am seeing...

We plan to arrive (via Ryanair) at Biarritz at 17.05 on 23rd September. According to what I believe is the timetable, the last train leaves Bayonne at 17.53 for SJPDP. After that it says 'Car'...

Please can anyone elucidate? Is that really the last train? If so, what is the 'Car' option? I don't believe we will be able to get to Bayonne that quickly.

Thanks in advance...

Hi! When my plane arrives that late, I choose to stay the night in Bayonne...
But.... a friend of mine did it and booked Express Bourricot. They pick you up at the airport and drive you to St Jean. If it runs at full capacity (I think it is 6 people), it works out at €19 per person.

Hi @Patrick Hickmott and welcome,

Just looking at the very useful Rome2Rio website here it seems like the last train on the 23rd of September leaves Bayonne at 18.30. That's still a pretty tight connection given that getting out of Biarritz airport can be slow and the bus to Bayonne takes at least 20 mins but it's doable.

If that feels just a little too risky I'd look into a service like Express Bourricot that does transfers direct from Biarritz to St Jean.

Thanks domigee and Dorpie...I think the Express Bourricot sounds like a good option. I will look into it.

yes

Some runs are by bus (voiture = car), and this may be one of them.:)

The rail bed has washed out many times, and a bus is substituted. After the last washout, they have used the bus about once a day. It leaves and arrives at the train station, so the substitution is seamless.

Ah! OK, thanks. That explains things...
