Bus 27 from Marseille to Castellane in June

Hi there

I was planning to get the 27 bus from Marseille to La Palud on Friday 3rd June and leave on Monday 6th June. However I have found a link to a timetable which says that this bus only runs on Saturdays and Mondays in June. The timetable is dated 15 December 2013 and I can't find a more up to date one. The timetable can be found here: autocars-sumian.fr/LIGNES/pdf/fh27-2014.pdf

Can anyone confirm if I have interpreted the timetable correctly and this bus does indeed only run on Saturdays and Mondays during June? I have already made my hotel reservations to check out on Friday but will have to change them to check out on the Saturday if this is the only day I can get the bus. I just want to make sure I am looking at the correct timetable before making any changes to my hotel reservations

Thanks in advance

I might be mistaken but I seem to understand that From April 1st to late June,the second part , ie from Riez to Castellane is only possible on Mondays and Saturdays, except holidays.Something to do with market days, I guess

On demand before that period . Daily in July and August (except Sundays and holidays)..

Thank you Soooz. This is exactly what I was looking for

guidemontelimar_13 I think you may have been looking at the same timetable as me which states that the bus only runs on Mondays and Saturdays. Thankfully this timetable is out of date by 2 years and the link provided by Soooz is valid from 1/9/2015 and states that it runs every day except sundays and bank holidays - I guess they've had a rethink since 2013. Interesting that the old timetable was related to market days. Was wondering why those 2 days in particular. I expected the bus not to be running at weekends but not be restricted to just Saturday and Monday

Anyway, all good now. Thank you both for your help

Ah yes I have now seen note 1 and I fear you are both correct. That's fine, I will just contact my hotel and change my booking. Thank you for spotting this for me
