Pending the completion of the metro network, whose times are still uncertain, buses and trams are the ideal solution for getting around Seville, away from the historic center. The latter, in fact, is entirely forbidden to means of transport.
Currently, the Seville metro consists of a single line (L1 – Green) that extends for 18 km, and a total of 22 stations, from Ciudad Expo to Olivar de Quintos, the two terminus.
Precisely in 2022, after years of waiting and endless postponements, work will begin on the other 3 lines. A project that provides for the coverage of the entire metropolitan area of Seville, for over 60 km in extension.
Line 1 is divided into 3 different sections (tramo) for as many tariff zones. Here is the detail:
Plot 0: from Ciudad Expo to Blas Infante.
Plot 1: from Blas Infante to Pablo de Olavide.
Plot 2: from Pablo de Olavide to Olivar de Quintos.

The metro operates from 6.30 to 23.00 from Monday to Thursday; on Fridays and the days before holidays from 6.30 to 2.00; on Saturdays from 7.30 to 2.00 and on Sundays and holidays from 7.30 to 23.00.
The road network is managed by TUSSAM (Transportes Urbanos de Sevilla). It is particularly extensive and covers every corner of the city in a capillary way. The bus is a fast and effective way for getting around Seville in complete peace of mind. It works from around 6.00 to 23.30, and on holidays from around 7.00 to 23.30. EA is the special line that connects the airport with the center of Seville and the Santa Justa Central Station.
The night service is guaranteed by 9 lines: A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8 and N29. Buses leave every day from Prado San Sebastián, in the center. The service is active on all holidays and from Monday to Thursday, from midnight to 02:00, with a frequency of 30′. Friday, Saturday and the night before holidays, it operates from midnight to 05:00 in the morning.
On Fridays and Saturdays, line 16 from Plaza Jerónimo de Córdoba also runs from midnight to 05:00.
The name could be confusing. In reality, it is the one, and only, tramway that crosses the historic center of the city. It stretches for a length of 2.2 kilometers, for a total of 5 stations, from Plaza Nueva to San Bernardo. It is managed by TUSSAM. More than a way to get around Seville, the MetroCentro is an ideal way to get an overview of the city, paying the price of a bus ticket!
It runs every day, from 06:00 to 23:30 approximately. On Fridays, Saturdays and days before holidays, the service is extended, at night, until 02:00.
Sevici is the extraordinary and efficient bike rental service in the city. Probably one of the best and alternative ways to move around Seville. Extremely economical and, above all, “green” method. At the price of €13.33, you can rent one of the many bicycles scattered in over 260 stations in the city for 7 days. You can take a bike, leave it and take a new one, as many times as you want, for the chosen time. Just register on the official website. The first half hour of use is free, then you will pay €1 for the next hour, and €2.00 for each hour after the first.
They circulate every day at any time and they recognize each other because they are white and bear the city coat of arms, a yellow stripe and the license number on one side. You can stop them directly on the street when the green light is on.
The rates are not excessive and are clearly displayed inside each taxi.
