Transportation in Barcelona


Yellow-and-black taxis ply Barcelona's streets and fares are reasonable. Hail them in the street if their green light is on, or wait at one of the many ranks. Tip around 5-10% if you wish.


Speedy and efficient, Barcelona's modern metro system is easy to navigate and is the quickest way to get about town.


The best way to explore the winding streets and narrow alleyways of the Gothic Quarter, El Raval and La Ribera in the Ciutat Vella is on foot. Take a stroll along the busy pedestrianised Las Ramblas to see the city's shoppers and entertainers out in force.


The main hub of the Greater Barcelona bus network is on the Plaça de Catalunya. The regular service runs from 5.30am-11pm, while night buses shuttle night owls home from 11pm-4am (after the metro shuts down). The special Shopping Line bus ferries shoppers between the main districts with extra room for bags. Visit the Tourist Office for a Barcelona Card that allows you to get on and off the bus as many times as you like during the day.

Rent your car

Barcelona is surrounded by fast ring-roads, with avenues running across the city and several one-way streets. The city is laid out on a grid system, except for the historical Gothic and Old Quarters. Parking costs around €2.70 per hour, but B:SM’s car parks offer a week’s secure parking for €42.95.
