    Default Overland Benodet to Brittany ferry Roscoff. Train, bus or taxi?

    I need to get from the marina in Benodet to the Brittany ferry terminal in Roscoff on Sunday 7th July. Ferry leaves 15.00 so need to be Roscoff by 14.00 latest.

    Any ideas on the best solution. Bus, train or taxi?

    The train from Morlaix to Roscoff is not currently running due to damage to one of the bridges. I don't expect it will ever run again.

    That is quite a journey as it happens I have done it as part of a journey by car which I think is your only option and will take a couple of hours and cost a bit. If at all possible I would book your taxi in advance.

    In the words of the old Irish joke I wouldn't start from there Brest would have been a better option.

    Or try this site for buses (or any other public transport in Brittany). It got me home from Lorient the other day!

    But your trip by bus looks like a bit of a marathon.

    Agreed. I’ve done a similar journey (but from L’Orient amongst other places) several times.

    I’ve also used a French ‘book a lift in a car’ service where you register and pay a contribution towards fuel. It’s called BlaBlaCar. https://m.blablacar.co.uk/ride-sharing-abroad/fr/ It’s pot luck whether you find someone driving the way you want to go on the day you want to travel etc but despite my scepticism it worked very well.

    Thanks for that link. That would be a novel experience, and a chance to brush up one's language skills.

    Just google Covoiturage Blablacar is possibly the biggest but there are other sites.

    Rome to Rio is a good site for journey planning like this.

    Have used Blabla car a few times with success but your chances of a suitable route available on a Sunday morning are slim. I dropped crew at Benodet two weeks ago and they used Poignard's suggested method.
    I'd rather be tethered to a pad eye than tethered to an iPad.
