It worked well. Enjoyed our trip.

Rae W.November 18, 2019 | 

There was no clear communication about numbered Bay Alsa 11. 00am bus would be leaving from. Many passengers were stressed & by chance found ourselves at Bay 19, although screen said Bay 5. Very unsatisfactory for all passengers. Goodness knows if passengers were left behind. It felt like chaos people were very anxious.

Kin Leong C.October 28, 2019 | 

Very comfortable and safe trip. Slight confusion at the Bilbao terminal on the platform number. Otherwise everything was perfect. Clean bus interiors. Thankfully the noisy kids were seated right at the rear. Absolutely loved the bus terminal in Donostia-San Sebastián.
