SS to Pamplona bus or train?


Two of us will be traveling from SS to Pamplona on July 8th during San Fermin. It looks like there are two bus companies, Alsa and and La Conda and also the train. I checked the train schedule and it leaves very early or late afternoon. I wanted to leave around 12noon.

Any input on which mode of transport would be best? Also, are buses reliable? Can we print our bus ticket from the online site? How early to arrive at bus stop prior to departure?

thank you.

A question from last year discussing some of the options here: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187457-i622-k5031…

Luckily you will be travelling during one of the 'quiet' periods (no time is quiet during San Fermin). There is no way of knowing how busy the buses will be on any given day. Maybe you could wander over to the bus stop the day before to see how the queues look.
