How to get around Barcelona
Barcelona is a city that has grown exponentially. This has turned transport into an essential tool to get quickly to the places. The city council, for its part, has collaborated to make it accessible to any citizen. For this reason, we have decided to make a post talking about the different types of transport in Barcelona, public and private.
Metro and FGC
The metro is the preferred type of transport for the locals, it is fast and affordable. It has eight lines that connect the city from end to end. Also if you want to go to the further metropolitan areas you can use the FGC. The prices of the single ticket are 2,20€ and of the T10 (10 trips), 10,20€.
There’s no better way to see the city while you travel through it. The city has more than 1,000 buses and 80 lines that run through the streets every 5 minutes. The same rates apply as in the subway. Remember that during rush hours you can be left without a seat.
It is an original form of transport, sustainable and also enhances your physical condition. The city is fully equipped with special bicycle lanes. You can rent the bikes or if you want to use the “red ones” you can make an annual subscription.
It is a comfortable and fast means of transport. Currently there are other services such as Cabify, Uber or MyTaxi. All of these give you a lot of flexibility and you can pay for it on the spot.
