    Hi Natalie,

    There has been ongoing on the rail line outside of Granada, forcing a bus substitution for the segment between Antequera and Granada. Therefore, to get from Malaga to Granada along this route, you would take a train from Malaga to Antequera and then a bus from Antequera to Granada. You might find it better just to take a direct bus all the way from Malaga to Granada. A bus ride from Malaga to Granada would only take 1.5 to 2 hours in duration, and the buses depart regularly throughout the day. Tickets for the direct buses from Malaga to Granada would have to be purchased directly through the bus company, ALSA.

    Otherwise, for the train/bus option via Antequera, you would purchase tickets by doing a search under 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage, www.raileurope.com.

    Since the buses from Antequera to Granada are replacements for the trains that previously operated along this stretch, the tickets we issue will be valid. When doing your search, it is important to note that you would have to type Antequera as 'Antequera Sta.Ana' for these segments display. For a trip from Malaga to Granada, you would also have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search for the segment from Malaga to 'Antequera Sta.Ana' and another search for the segment from 'Antequera Sta.Ana' to Granada.

    Trains from Malaga to Antequera (Antequera Sta.Ana) are high-speed AVE or Avant trains.

    • Our travel agent who has done us lots of reservations in Spain suggested they did not and was unable to book one.. So we have a reservation on 13th Sept from Madrid Atocha 1135 to arrrive Antequera SA 1352 and need to connect to the bus to Granada that leaves at 1440... but have no reservation.. Then on 14th Granada we plan to get the 1732 (Bus) Antequera SA to connect to 1901 Antequera SA and catch the train (which we have reserved) 1929 to Cordoba 1959.. So what do we have to do to sort this out..
