Hitching Out

Towards Madrid

Take bus line #1 heading San Roque and ride all the way to the last stop, from there walk about 500 meters along the road until you find a petrol station next to which there is a restaurant called Venta don José. From there you should get easy rides onto the highway E-90.

Towards Portugal

Some anonymous hitchhiker suggests to take bus line #9 or anyone heading to University campus, drop at Avenida de Elv As, this avenue goes all the way to the border, there are many roundabouts so vehicles never go too fast.

Towards Sevilla, Zafra

Take bus line #5 and get out at the last stop of Avenida Juan Sebastián Elcano. Hitchhike at the traffic light where all vehicles have to stop in order to turn right towards Sevilla.
