Hi, can anyone advise if it is possible to get a mini bus or taxis from Noja to take us to Bilbao.. We are a group of 8 and this seems like the easiest and quickest way to get to Bilbao. Thanks
If you Google "taxi Noja" you'll get a couple of options for taxis - I imagine they'll have no problem taking you to Bilbao, whether they have taxis to take 8 people I don't know, but you can always take 2 - if they have 2! They might be just one guy (or girl) running their own business, most likely. One of the options there has an email, so I'd email and ask. Bear in mind if you're going to Bilbao airport, this is quite a bit further on than Bilbao, so make sure you tell them that or you'll get an unrealistic costing.
Otherwise, you can do this by bus. You have to get a bus from Noja to Laredo (8 a day - every 2 hours, takes 50 minutes), then the main north coast ALSA bus from Laredo to Bilbao (www.alsa.es) which run regularly too - but you'll need to book tickets in advance (online) on this bus for 8 people (the other bus you can't - just make sure you're first in the queue!). If you are going to the airport, there's then a shuttle bus from Bilbao bus station to the airport. For local times check out: www.transportedecantabria.es (it's a little slow, be patient!).
Thanks very much for the reply
