Why is getting to Gibraltar from Spain so hard?

For the last three days, I have tried to figure out an economical, time efficient way to get from Sevilla to Gibraltar. There is very little established information on how to get to Sevilla to Gibraltar. A combination of train travel and bus travel exist but nothing that definitely explains how one should go about doing the trip. This is my attempt at clarifying the mystery of Sevilla to Gibraltar

How to get from Sevilla to Gibraltar:

  1. Head directly to Prado de San Sebatstian :
    Calle de Manuel Vázquez Sagastizábal S/N, 41004
    Sevilla, Spain‎
    954 41 71 18‎
  2. Once in the bus station buy a ticket at the Gomes Bus Company counter for the Sevilla to La Linea route. As of the posting date, the cost of a one way bus ticket was €21. 

  3. The buses from Sevilla to La Linea leave 4 times daily – the most updated bus schedule should be located here :
    • Departure from Sevilla :9,30    | Arrival at La Linea : 13,30
    • Departure from Sevilla: 14,00  | Arrival at La Linea : 18,00
    • Departure from Sevilla: 17,30  | Arrival at La Linea : 21,30
    • Departure from Sevilla: 20,00 | Arrival at La Linea : 00,20
  4. The bus will take you from Sevilla bus station through a bunch of small Spanish towns indicated on the map above and after about 3h45m, will drop you off at La Linea de la Conception. La Linea bus station is only 5 minutes walk from the Spanish border with Gibraltar and as you come out of the front entrance the Rock of Gibraltar is clearly visible.
  5. The Spanish border and point of entry into Gibraltar are very close to the La Linea bus station. Perhaps 5 minutes walk without a heavy suitcase and 8 to 10 minutes if you are trundling a heavier suitcase.

    There are a number of cafes and restaurants just over the roundabout on your way to the border. As you come straight out of the entrance seen above, head for the Rock and the restaurant is on your left.

  6. Welcome to Gibraltar…. now that wasn’t so hard, was it?
