The bus station is centrally located and is very near the regional government's administrative buildings (Xunta de Galicia). Different local, regional and national transport companies connect Santiago with Galicia's main towns, Portugal, Madrid, Barcelona and Bilbao. The high frequency of buses also makes it easy to link with other means of transport to travel throughout Europe.
Reaching Santiago by road
The entire Atlantic corridor is linked by motorway or dual carriageway.
The AP-9 Atlantic Motorway links Santiago de Compostela with Galicia's main coastal cities, from Ferrol and A Coruña in the north, passing through the Rías Baixas region, Pontevedra and Vigo, to Tui on the Portuguese border. Santiago is connected to the Castilian plateau by means of the Northwest Dual Carriageway (A-6), which links up with the AP-9 near A Coruña, or by means of the Rías Baixas Dual Carriageway (A-52), which crosses Ourense province and links up with the AP-9 at Vigo.
From Ourense, there is also the possibility of taking the N-525 road to Lalín and then the AP-53 motorway to Santiago.
From the Cantabrian corridor, Galicia is reached by means of Ribadeo, a Galician town bordering Asturias, via the N-634, a first-rate road that links up with the Northwest Dual Carriageway (A-6).
