“Hi Mike, I’m arriving at Malaga Airport at 6.30pm Can I get a bus from Malaga bus station to La Linea next to  Gibraltar? Thanks Jak”

I replied, “Hi Jak, Thank you very much for writing in. You could be out of luck with your arrival  time  to catch the direct bus to La Linea from the airport.  To get to Malaga bus station to start your journey to La Linea take a bus or train from Malaga airport to the  bus station.

From Malaga airport there are two buses every hour. It’s the Malaga City Line A Express and takes 30 minutes. You can also travel from Malaga airport train station to  the Maria Zambrano train station in Malaga. It’s right next to the bus station. There are three trains every hour and it’s an eight minute journey. Rather than wait for a bus,  take the next train!

You can also travel to Gibraltar by taking  the Malaga airport to Marbella bus station shuttle bus and then a bus to La Linea de la Concepción.  That would mean two buses. Travelling from Malaga bus station to La Linea will only be one journey.

If you are not in a hurry to get there, you could have a night out in Marbella and then carry on your journey the next day on the bus.

The good news is that on your way back from Gibraltar to the airport, you can use buses all the way. Do the journey in reverse and take the bus from Linea bus station to Marbella bus station. Then the shuttle bus to the airport and you’ll arrive in good time for your evening flight.

Please write back if you have any doubts and if a night in Marbella sounds attractive, I’ll recommend you a really good, economical hotel. Thanks again for writing in Jak, I do hope this helps you.  Mike”
