Oslo (Torp) Airport to Kristiansand

Is there a coach/bus from Torp Airport to Kristiansand? Any ideas to where in Kristiansand, how much and how long it takes?

Many thanks for the advice and sorry for delay in getting back to you. I would love to work and live in Norway!

One more question........ if I book and pay for a ticket with Konkurrenten for the 14:35 bus from Fokserod to Kristiansand, and then miss the bus because my flight is delayed, can I then transfer my ticket to the next bus which is the Nor-way Bussekspress at 15:50? Or would I have to buy another ticket? Otherwise I have to wait until 16:35 for the next bus, and I don't want to hang around too long in the cold! Is there any shelter at this mysterious Fokserod place?

You are partly right about my repeated trips to Kristiansand but not perhaps in the manner you thought! My daughter is studying in Kristiansand, So I took her there in August, my son visited in October and my husband will be collecting her next week! So sadly I am mostly the travel agent rather than the traveller. It has been fun though....

Sorry, bus tickets are not transferable from one company to another. But there is really no need to book bus tickets in advance, you can just buy your ticket from the driver when boarding.

Fokserød is a highway rest stop with a petrol station and a motel, it should be possible to find some shelter if you have to wait for the bus: http://goo.gl/maps/ChVir

As Konkurrenten and NorWay Busexpress are two different companies, I sincerely doubt that tickets would be transferable. I suggest you buy the tickets on arrival rather than in advance.

"Konkurrenten" means "The Competitor". They dont cooperate, but have low prices.
