Barcelona Buses Public Transport
The buses in Barcelona are excellent and great for getting around the city. The transport in Barcelona is modern and clean so as well as being an enjoyable experience, it is also affordable.
Most bus stops have lots of timetables and routes so you’ll have no problem finding your way around.
Barcelona Bus Fares
Barcelona has an integrated fare system which makes it possible to use the underground, bus, FGC and Renfe in the same journey within the Metropolitan Region extended to the limits of the local rail services.
Note: One thing you must be sure to do is validate the ticket on every changeover
The period of time in which the changeover is free is 1h 15 min (between the first and last validation) for the one-zone ticket, increased by 15 mins per additional zone.
TIP! A single bus ticket costs the same as a single ticket on the metro and is bought on the bus. If you are going to use the public transport a lot it’s definitely worth buying a T-10 ticket. This is very economical and valid for ten journeys and you can also share the ticket with two or more people.
Aerobús ~ Airport Shuttle
The Aerobús A1 and A2 connect the city of Barcelona to the airport terminals from Plaça Catalunya in the center of town.
The bus has a low platform without steps and there’s an electronic ramp and interior space for wheelchairs. You buy tickets on the bus which has air conditioning and background music (most Spanish buses have this).
Note: There are two separate queues – one for the Aerobus (A1) to Terminal 1 at the front of the bus stop and the other queue is for Aerobus (A2) to Terminal 2 which is at the back of this.
The bus stops along the famous stretch where all the wonderful shops and amazing works of Antoni Gaudi are located along the Passeig de Gracia and onwards to the top of Avinguda Diagonal.
