Spain Transportation

Transportation in Spain is generally very good in Spanish cities, most of which have efficient bus and rail systems. For tourists planning to visit the Spanish cities, public transportation in Spain will prove far more convenient and pleasant than driving. Spain transportation is served well by an extensive rail system. There is no national bus service in Spain but many small cities in Spain have access to the larger cities through a local bus system.

Intercity Rail: Spain transportation has a wide rail network operated by a state owned company called Red Nacional de los Ferrocarriles Españoles (RENFE). They operate a wide range of services and fares. Their fastest trains, the AVE, are among Europe's best with their slowest travelling about the same speed as a bus. The RENFE provides a service to all major cities, although it doesn't run to many small towns, and is supplemented by networks such as the FFCC city lines in Barcelona and private railways. There are also a huge variety of local, short-distance trains called tranvia.

Buses: The local bus services in Spanish cities run from around 0600 until between 22:00 and midnight, when a more expensive night system comes into operation. Most buses don't have a lot of seats, opting instead for maximum standing room. Urban buses are quite slow although some major cities provide dedicated bus lanes. Most towns have a bus terminal.

Taxis: Taxis form a part of transportation in Spain but should only be used which are displaying a special license. These are of a very high standard as they are governed by strict legislation. They display a green light when they are free (libre). They can be flagged down or found at a taxi rank and are metered but have a set price for certain journeys.

Metro: Spain transportation has metro lines in Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia offering with the fastest way to get around these cities and is crowded during rush hours. Special tickets are available including a cheap day return, a metrocard allowing three / five days unlimited use, and weekly and monthly passes.
