I checked the Avila bus time table again with the Larrea ticket office
and I discovered that it takes 1.45min to Avila and not the one hour I
was given the impression to believe. This makes the journey about 20
minutes longer than the train. However, it is slightly cheaper by bus.
In view of this if you let me know your preference before Thursday
afternoon I'll be able to get in touch to let you know what the
consensus is. I don't mind which way I go. In any case there is nothing
to stop people from making their own arrangements; as long as the first
ones in Avila will find a decent bar and collar a table for the rest.
BUS: leaves Mendes Alvaro 11.00am arrive 12.45pm
Return: 20.30pm arrives Madrid 20.30pm. We probably have to book our
return very early.
Price: 11.35 euros return
TRAIN: from Nuevos Ministerios approx 11.00am arrives Avila 12.21pm
RETURN: 20.15pm and arrives Madrid 22.20pm
Price: as far as I can make out 16.80 euros (might be a bit less)
Please let me know so I can send out the result on Thursday.
