How to get from Pau to Candanchu

I am flying into Pau on 09.07.2011 arriving 15.00hrs. I need to travel on to Candanchu. Is there any public transport that can get me there or will I have to take a taxi? If there is public transport I will need details of where to get this and any connections. Thanks

My map has two places called Candanchú one on the French side of the border and one on the Spanish side. I hope it is the one on the French side but I think the bus crosses to border to go to the railway station on the Spanish side.

There is a train from Pau to Oloron Sainte Marie, then a bus, operated by SNCF the railway to replace the long-closed railway line.

The timetable should be here but for some reason I cannot open the file


There are only about 3 trains/buses a day

It's about 82km/50 miles so a taxi would cost a fortune.
