Many thanks for that Mondo. Probably safer to get there for 9am
:lol:



Just remember that the buses in Rojales/Quesada don´t work like UK buses.. the driver will not watch you running for the bus then set off just as your hand touches the door.. the drivers will wait for you... they will help ladies with their babies, they will help get stuff out of the under bus storage, if they have no change for your note they will wait while you go to the nearest bar and get change.....

All this I have seen while travelling on the local buses...and I don´t think this is a bad thing.... trouble is, if none of the above needs doing they will come 5 or 10 minutes earlier, and if there is no one at the stop they will go...so always allow a bit of slack both sides..
:D

So in other words get there for 9 and be prepared to wait until 9:30 ;).

Sounds like my kind of old-fashioned bus driver though, unlike arrogant, sadistic ones in the UK!

Many thanks for all the info, Mondo

careful everyone
my wife waited for the bus on Wednesday from 0855 to 0935 along with several others but it didn't turn up.
We were on the return bus on Monday and the driver had such a pig of a journey up the "High St" (sic) I don't blame him if he just did the Arches drop off.

You can get the bus back from the bus station near the Marina (if you get off there you will see where it is).
The times don't change much on this route but allowing at least 10 minutes each side of the time due is a good idea.The spot where it drops off is also where it picks up which is just outside the bus station.
