Finding a Renfe timetable

Postby jagumar » Tue Jan 15, 2019 3:17 pm

My goodness, it used to be easy to check the internet for train times on the Renfe service between Fuengirola and Malaga.
Now I look, and all I can find are prices for competing taxi services to and from these destinations, or flights from Malaga!
And this is as a consequence of searching "Train times from Fuengirola to Malaga"!
What have taxi fares and flights got to do with train times?!
Never mind, I will keep searching!

I use an app called 'Spain Commuter Trains':

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... nias&hl=en

You choose which Cercanía network you want then enter the station of origin and the station of destination and it gives you the times of all the trains.

There is also detailed information about the Málaga Cercanía here:

UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.

Probably more to do with your previous browsing history & cookies etc. My tip for future reference: if you clear your history & cookies you'll probably get different results - or better still, simply include "renfe" or "cercanias" in your search criteria, and you will find the actual Renfe site on the first page of results. Happy searching!

About four times a year the whole site grinds to a halt while the new timetable comes out. The only way to get tickets is to go to a railway station. At least, that's what happens in Extremadura.

Google “Renfe cercanias” which will take you to the renfe website which has full timetables.

Have been using the "RENFE" site for years without any problems.

Easy to use, and not a taxi in sight ! ( or site )

I have found it unhelpful - looking at travel from here (Torre de Pacheco, Murcia) to Madrid there is a choice of trains, normal Medium Distance or AVE, but there are none to return!

Well, according to the renfe site there are three return trains today (Friday) -

00222 Altaria dep Madrid 9.00 arrive Torre Pacheco 14.08
05676 Alvia. 17.20. 21.28
00226 Altaria. 19.00. 00.07

Am I missing something?
