Does anybody know if there is a bus from Roscoff on Sat 30 June to either Morlaix or Quimper. We are just coming over for a day and need to get back to Roscoff in time for the 11pm sailing. I have looked at the rail website but the first train that goes to Roscoff on that day does not go until 10.52 and as the ferry gets in at about 7.30am we would prefer to go then. Has anybody got any advice. Years ago we came over as foot passengers and there was a bus meeting the ferry, is this still so?
The number 29 bus leaves Roscoff ferry for Morlaix at 0745 on a Saturday, arriving in Morlaix at 0830.
Route 29 timetable
Note there are no buses back in the late evenings.
There are no buses on Saturdays on route 60 Morlaix - Quimper and I can't see any way to get from Roscoff to Quimper and back other than by train and about a four hour journey as it's the long way round via Brest.
Bus route 60 timetable
As you will have discovered, most of the 'trains' between Morlaix and Roscoff are in fact buses operated by SNCF - these are in addition to the route 29 and this shows an 0816 departure from Roscoff on Saturdays.
I hope that helps.
I think the bus still meets the ferry and is scheduled for 0745 departure. It will hang around for a time if the ferry is late but usually the ferry is ontime as it lays off the harbour for a while when it arrives.
