St Jean Pied de Port?

There's a local train service from Bayonne. Having seen your other post, get off the train at Bayonne and find an hotel there.

Train times - they are very infrequent. There are no buses.

Read the footnotes carefully concerning which dates trains operate.

Ah, I replied to your other post before seeing this one.

As above stay in Bayonne, plenty of choice of hotels.

I think I remember reading that there were up to 5 trains a day from Bayonne to Saint Jean Pied de Port.

Hideously complicated timetable, though, for such a little line.

Times for trains from Bayonne to St Jean Pied de Port in September and October thus

0725 on Mondays only, except holidays

0754 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, except holidays

0941 on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays

1141 on Mondays to Fridays except holidays

1407 on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays

1537 on Mondays to Fridays except holidays

1547 on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays

1841 on Mondays to Fridays except holidays

1936 on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays

2041 on Fridays and this is a bus instead of a train

Journey time is about 1hr 20 minutes. Seat reservation is neither available nor necessary. Advance purchase of tickets is not needed either, as the ticket price is always the same.
