How to get around Barcelona

By Car

It is certainly more convenient to hire a car before reaching Barcelona. You can hire cars directly online at very competitive rates at the address:

If the car is removed call the Dipòsit Municipal, to know where to fetch it from; in the urban areas the speed limit is 50 km/h, on the main roads it’s 100 Km/h, on state roads and motorways it is 120 Km/h.

The Buses, the underground and the suburban trams are integrated in a single tariff system managed by the Autoritat del Transport Metropolità (ATM); the ticket for each journey costs 1 Euro; the “targetes” are tickets for more trips.


This is the simplest and fastest way to get around the city; there are five lines, with different numbers and colours.

  • From Monday to Thursday from 5 to 23.00
  • on Fridays, Saturdays and on the even of festivities from 6 to 24
  • On Sundays from 6 to 24

FGC (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya): it is a suburban railway system with two lines which extend into the centre of Barcelona.

  • from Sunday to Thursday from 5 to 23 or 23:30
  • Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 2

These trains lead to the outskirts of Barcelona and the inland towns.

  • from 5 to 23:30, stopping at Sants, Placa de Catalunya, Passeig de Gràcia and another two stations

The bus networks is rather extensive, even though night buses run along few routes.

TMB Nitbus, day service
  • Times: from 5 to 23
