The tram connects Alicante with Playa de San Juan, Playa de Muchavista, Campello and Benidorm. There are three stations at Alicante city: Luceros (under Plaza de los Luceros), Mercado (close to the central market) and MARQ (near the Archaeological Museum).
Line 3 departs from Plaza de los Luceros, stops at the Central Market and MARQ and goes to Campello every 30 minutes. These trains stop at all the halts.
Line 1 makes the same route and continues to Benidorm. These trains stop only at the main stations.
Line 4 connects Alicante with San Juan beach.
A shuttle line (4L) connects the Postiguet beach (Puerta del Mar) with lines 1, 3 and 4 at Sangueta.
New lines are being built that will connect the city with San Vicente, the University and later on, the airport.
The tram is fast, clean and safe: you don't need to take the car and go into a traffic jam, look for parking, etc. Schedules during the summer are longer: the "tramnochador" circulates till late in the night.
Tickets can be bought at the ticket machines in the stations and in the trains. At the stations there are also counters in case you don’t manage to operate the machine.
If you are going to use the tram frequently there are some interesting choices to save money such as bonus and travel card. They can be bought at the stations and also at kiosks and tobacconists.
Mobilis card is a contactless smartcard that costs 2 €. You can buy it at the stations and charge it in the ticke machines, in kiosks and tobacconists. This card can also be used in the buses of the TAM (Transporte Alicante Metropolitano) network.
How to use the mobilis card? When you enter in the train touch the orange electronic reader with the card. If you take the tram in a station you must pass the ticket barrier where the electronic reader is. Then, you don’t have to touch again the reader in the train. In case you go out in a station, you also have to open the ticket barrier by touching the reader with the card, but don’t worry; a new travel won’t be deduced.
A mobilis card can be used by several people, touch the reader as many times as people are travelling.

All the stations, halts and trains are adapted for people with reduced mobility and for wheelchair users. Underground stations have escalators and are equipped with lifts.
