Euskotren Fahrplan

The DB Navigator is the best app or website to find train schedules. It would be even greater if it included the Euskotren schedules. Currently the navigator is missing some interesting correspondences between Hendaye and Irun or San Sebastian, and you have to find them by hand using the Euskotren website.

Hello adrienr,

the timetable data which are imported into the Deutsche Bahn system come from the European Timetable Centre. The network of Euskotren consists partly of tram and underground connections. In some cases, there are also fuse gauge lines and lines in Spanish broad gauge which are not fully connected to the European rail network. If Euskotren does not report the data to the European Timetable Centre, no timetable data can be displayed. In addition, as user Benutzerin wrote, the demand for this connection is rather low for DB customers.

What do you expect: Even the normal RENFE site http://www.renfe.com/ does not show their own narrow-gauge lines (which used to be a separate company):

http://www.renfe.com/viajeros/feve/index.html

The owner of Euskotren is the basque regional government:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eusko_Trenbideak_%E2%80%93_...

They have a rather bad website NOT showing all rail services:

https://turismo.euskadi.eus/aa30-15413x/es/s12PortalWar/b...

You should rather complain to them or RENFE...

@Joeopitz: Thank you for your constructive answer. If the timetable is not available, would it be possible to add the Euskotren line (E2) as an urban transport connection between Hendaye and Irun, and between Hendaye and San Sebastian ? (Like it is done for connections by metro between two different stations in Paris.) I understand it is not a top priority for DB, but I don't think it's very complicated to configure.

@leo: I'm not "complaining" to anyone, only giving a suggestion to improve the website. And your link points to an obscure page by the tourist office. The correct Euskotren website at https://www.euskotren.eus/ is perfectly usable.

„would it be possible to add the Euskotren line (E2) as an urban transport connection between Hendaye and Irun, and between Hendaye and San Sebastian ? (Like it is done for connections by metro between two different stations in Paris.)“

Hello adrienr,

you won't get an answer to that here. In this community railway customers answer questions of other railway customers. The members of this community are not employees of the Bahn. Here is a place where you can help other railway customers with answers and tips. This is not the place to send suggestions, wishes or criticism to the DB.

By the way, the data of the Paris Metro are not added extra. The Metro reports its data to the European Timetable Centre. This is also done by many other local transport companies.

Apparently you did not get my point:

In all parts of the world there are many different train operators. And often the specific regionial government provides transportation details for all operators, including trams and buses.

Some examples:

Bavaria in Germany: https://bahnland-bayern.de
North-Rhine-Westphalia in Germany: https://www.mobil.nrw/
Berlin-Brandenburg in Germany: https://www.vbb.de/en/
Île de France (Paris region) in France: http://www.navigo.fr/
Sud/PACA in France: https://www.sudmobilite.fr
Catalunya in Spain: http://mobilitat.gencat.cat/es/index.html

My point was: Please complain to the Basque regional government that they just provide this useless page with station information and links to train companies – and not something useful like the examples above.

Meanwhile I have to correct myself however: You can only complain their site is very difficultt to find:

http://www.moveuskadi.euskadi.eus

Here you will find ALL modes of transport: RENFE-Cercanías, Euskotren and buses. I know the Euskotren website (which drove me mad years ago when I did not know „Donostia“ for San Sebastián yet) and the RENFE website perfectly well – but I meant ONE site for ALL train companies!

Additional remarks:

Often there are also nationwide sites. Either for trains of all companies only

Britain: https://ojp.nationalrail.co.uk/service/planjourney/search

or also for other traffic:

Germany: https://reiseauskunft.bahn.de
Netherlands: https://9292.nl
Denmark: https://www.rejseplanen.dk
Sweden: https://resrobot.se/
Austria: https://fahrplan.oebb.at
Switzerland: https://www.sbb.ch/de/fahrplan.html
Japan: http://www.hyperdia.com

These sites are either strictly confined to one country or are mainly used to show all travel outside from or to the respective country. Bahn.de extends very widely – but even omits certain trains or even complete routes which are not relavant for travel from or to Germany. The sites are often run by the largest train operator of the country or the owner of the tracks and stations.

Why does no such nationwide site at least for trains exist in Spain? You should ask the largest Spanish train operator RENFE (who even omit their own narrow-gauge trains that used to be a separate company)

http://www.renfe.com/

or the owner of the tracks and stations ADIF:

http://www.adif.es/en_US/index.shtml

Yes, I even tried their app: http://www.adif.es/es_ES/adif_movil.shtml No good...
