"The usual choices here for..." Barcelona Transportation Tip by SusanneBeck

Barcelona Transportation: 613 reviews and 527 photos

The usual choices here for getting around. <b>Walking</b>, <b>taxi</b> or <b>bus</b>. The old bus station 'Estació del Nord' is the main terminal for regular routes, though some routes do leave from the railway station 'Estació de Sants' and other points. Barcelona also has a <b>Metro</b> system. There are 5 subway lines (1-5). The metro runs from 5am to 11pm from Monday to Thursday, and 5am to 2am on Fridays, Saturdays and the day before a holiday. On a Sunday, the metro runs from 6am to 12midnight. The reduced rate ticket, T-1, is good. This lets you have 10 rides on the Metro, buses and FGC urban trains. Another reduced rate ticket is the T-2 which is very similar but offers 10 rides on Metro and FGC urban trains only. The T-1 can be bought in Savings Banks (Caixas) and the T-2 is available from Savings Banks and metro stations.
