Ronda to Granada by Train Possible?

There seems to be very little information about going from Ronda to Granada by train or bus. Online train sites, renfe, omio Rome2rio, indicate no trains available in this direction, but are available in the other direction which is strange. I've seen some information about catching a train or bus in Antequera but information is lacking about how to get to Antequera. Is there any way to book this trip Ronda-Granada via public transportation? Initially I would travel from Jerez to Ronda as there is a bus route to do this but going on to Granada is the question. I want to travel this route in mid-May. Can anyone advise, thanks.

I'm seeing trains on the Renfe website. There seems to be a change in Antequera. Were you perhaps looking for a date after March 24?

Thanks for the quick reply!
Yes travel is for after March 24th for dates in mid May. Perhaps the schedule is not available yet? It is not clear to me if it's a Train or bus from Ronda and whether it's a change to a train or bus at Antequera and whether it's all one ticket purchase. I know there is a train station in Ronda but I see confusing reports about ongoing construction for new service causing route closures.

Yes, it seems the schedule is loaded for about the next 30 days. There's a pop-up message in Spanish if you look for dates early in March. Frankly, I didn't try to read it. I assume it says part of the trip will be by bus, but even if that affects the rail line your train uses, the situation may be resolved before you travel. I've run into buses replacing trains in at least 3 other countries, and it's normally handled seamlessly. The bus is parked in front of the train station, and you just follow the other folks getting off the train; many of them will be headed to the bus. Say the name of your destination to the bus driver in an inquiring tone to be sure there's no confusion or show him/her your train ticket.
