Barcelona Transport tickets. Info, costs, types, where to buy

Barcelona Transport tickets

Public transport in Barcelona is extremely quick and efficient. Metro, tram, bus and even two cable cars: you are really spoiled for choice. Here is a guide on Barcelona Transport tickets, to get around the city with excellent Catalan service.

For those who intend to use the vehicles sporadically, we recommend the single-ride ticket, that is, BITLLET SENZILL. It costs 2.55€ and is valid on the buses, metro and funicular Montjuic managed by TMB. Not valid for the airport and the cable cars, where you need to purchase a special ticket.

Rather convenient, however, is the T-Casual. It is an integrated ATM of the ATM, valid for 10 trips to the chosen area. There are 6 types for as many areas with which to move between the center and surrounding areas. Each trip can be made within 75 minutes of validation. The time increases by 15 minutes for each zone after the first. Valid on all buses, metro, tram and RENFE trains. Not valid for the airport. The T-Casual, valid for ZONE 1 (center and outskirts of Barcelona) costs 12.15€. The savings, therefore, are quite evident. The ticket for ZONE 2 costs €23.90. Keep in mind that ZONE 1 is enough to move around the center.

The day ticket, called T-DIA, it is worth 24 hours from the validation and allows to make unlimited movements on all the vehicles, within the chosen zone. The T-DIA costs from a minimum of €11.10 for a zone, to a maximum of 30.05€ for 6 zones. The day ticket also includes a return trip, within 24 hours, to the airport.
