Is anyone traveling by car from Bastia to Calvi or Calenzana this Thursday 9/6? I will be arriving at 16:10 at the Bastia airport with one other hiker - would be glad to share cost of a renting a car if anyone is interested.

In fact, happy to pay for the rental car in exchange for a person who can drive a manual transmission :')

Alternatively, you can take the train to Calvi.
Two options : walk to the Lucciana-L'Alivella train station (3.5km from the airport) to catch the train at 17:08; or take a taxi to Casamozza train station (6 km from the airport) to catch the 17:18 train to Ponte-Leccia. Once in Ponte Leccia (~18:00), change train to Calvi (arrives at ~20:00)

Thanks a bunch! It looks like I'll shoot to taxi to Casamozza and try to catch that train or alternatively there seems to be a bus as well which goes to Calvi from Casamozza

The taxi was €20 when I used it a couple of years ago from the airport to Casamozza, despite the short distance.

I will be glad to pay €20 for a chance to salvage some time on the trail!
