If you are planning an excursion to Gibraltar by bus then La Linea bus station is an important destination for travellers visiting Gibraltar or flying on from Gibraltar airport just over the border. The La Linea bus station serves the Comes bus company which operates the bus routes in Cádiz. The Portillo bus company covers the Costa del Sol up to Málaga. Both bus companies operate buses into each other’s areas. For example the Comes bus company has a long distance bus from Cádiz to Málaga bus station and the Portillo bus company operates the service from Malaga bus station to the city of Cádiz.
Visitors often land at Malaga airport and need to to get to Gibraltar by bus the same day. Depending on the time of day there are direct buses. Travellers can also pick up connections from Malaga bus station or Marbella bus station to Gibraltar terminating the journeys at La Linea bus station.
The Gomarbella bus ticket booking engine below will take you to the La Linea bus station from all points on the coast. When you type in La Linea you will see La Linea de la Concepción. That is correct, it is the full name of the border town. Book a return ticket from La Linea before you travel or else buy a return ticket as soon as you arrive at La Linea bus station. The exit queues from Gibraltar are unpredictable and you don’t want to be queuing again at the ticket office just before your bus leaves. There is no left luggage storage locker at and I advise you to look after your possessions when you are getting on and off your buses and at all bus stops and stations along the route. You would do that anywhere wouldn’t you?
