We are visiting Santiago in September, and will be flying from San Sebastian or Bilbao. There are few palatable options to chose from; is flying to A Coruna airport and taking a bus or train to Santiago a good option? It appears to be more flexible, but I am having some difficulties finding train schedules on the Bahn or Renfe websites. Does a bus or train connect the two points with frequent service? Thank you!
There is a bus service run by ASICASA which joins A Coruña (Puerta Real) with the airport, with stops in Casino, Plaza de Orense, Avenida A. Molina, Alcampo, Portazgo, Corveira and Vilaboa. (The bus goes past the train station)
Journey duration: 25 minutes
On working days, both from A Coruña and from the airport, buses run from 7.15 am to 9.45 pm every half hour. On Saturdays they leave from A Coruña every hour from 7.30 am to 10.30 pm, and from the airport from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm also every hour. On Sundays and bank-holidays they leave every hour, from A Coruña from 8.30 am to 10.30 pm, and from the airport from 9.00 am to 10.00 pm.
Price: 1.45 euros
Information telephone: 981 231 234
There are trains from A Coruña to Santiago de Compostela but only 2 or 3 per day and at very odd times, If you’re using DB bahn to find the town use La Coruna.
You may be better researching buses to get there from A Coruña. I tried but with little success.
Another alternative is a taxi/limo from A Coruña to Santiago.
Or last resort, hire a car.
Best of luck.
