mini FAQ

Which means of public transportation I can use with the tickets? During a given time, a ticket can be used for the following forms of public transportation, if changing is necessary. The same ticket may be used again, without the machine "chopper" marking a new journey:

  • Metro.
  • Bus
  • Train (Renfe).
  • Catalan railway train (FGC).
  • Cable car (Funicular of Montjuïc) in Parallel stop, line 2, the color purple line.
  • Tram.

There may be complications, however (see at the bottom of this page under "Important" for exceptions). For example if you go round trip on a bus using the same line, it is marked as two trips, although the card ay still be within the time limit. If you take the metro, then the Tram and then the bus it's marked as only one trip.

¿Children trip is free? Yes, from 0 to 3 years old is free. From 4 years old must pay normal ticket.

And what kind of transportation CAN'T I use, with the tickets?

  • The blue tram (the tram that takes you to up the mountain of Tibidabo).
  • The cable car from Montjuic to marine port.
  • Tourist bus.

These tickets must be paid separately (see paragraph prices there before entitled: "Special tickets for tourists").

And how long can I use the ticket? You can use different means of public transportation for 1 hour and 15 minutes, if your ticket is for 1 zone. If your ticket is for 2 zones: 1 hour and 30 minutes. For each additional zone, you get 15 extra minutes, such that the duration of a 6 zone ticket is 2 hours.

Should I check my ticket? Yes, always. Upon entering the bus or tram you must insert your ticket in the machine at the entrance to the car or the Metro or railway station FCG. You must insert the ticket into the slot, because it uses a magnetic stripe, not RF chips.

You should also be mark your ticket when switching from one form of transportation to another (the machine will beep but new trip will not be marked). If you enter the subway or railway station (FCG), machines are at the entrance of the compound or on the platform. If you do not mark your ticket and are detected by ticket checkers, you may face a fine of 100 euros (50 Euros if you pay on the spot). Ticket checkers are usually in Sagrada Familia metro station and in Sants railway station but may be anywhere. As a rule, be sure and always check your ticket in the "checking machines" before boarding.

And where buy the metro ticket? It can be bought in various sites:

  • The easiest are machines at the Metro stations that allow payment with coins, bills or credit cards. The machines have touch screen with a menu of options, are in eight different languages and are very easy to use.
  • In tobacco shops and news shops, you can buy only single tickets and T-10 tickets (10 trips).
  • On the bus (not recommended) you can buy single tickets only (2,15 €) that do not allow transfer to other means of transportation. Aside from the fact that single tickets are the most expensive per trip, the bus drivers can rarely make change, and may not allow you up to the bus if you don’t have exact change . If you buy the ticket on the bus, remember that you enter from the front of the bus and pay the driver when entering (or check your ticket in the machine if you already have a ticket). This may seem obvious but it isn’t to everyone (in Japan for example, you enter through the back of the bus, the driver is paid at the end of the trip, and you exit through the front door of the bus).

 

Important

Two things:

Be very careful of pickpockets in Barcelona (especially if you look asian like japanese or chinese). We have an excellent police force in Barcelona an but they (and we all) are at the mercy of politicians who do not seem to be interested in stiffening laws to punish pickpockets. So when the police arrest a thief, he/she is freed within 30 minutes to continue stealing. Barcelona is the paradise for thieves! Pickpockets steal mainly on the escalator, when the tourists leave or enter the subway car, and sometimes on the street (especially in Las Ramblas). The vast majority of pickpockets are Moroccans or Romanian Gypsies, but not exclusively, There are a few Spanish pickpockets, as well as those from other countries. You only feel a a bump when steal from you, they are like (bad) magicians, but don't normally use violence. Watch your wallet, cell phone and luggage well, and you should be ok.

One last thing: Metro tickets (T-10, T-Mes, etc. EXCEPT single ticket) can also used for the bus, Funicular of Montjuïc, and rail of FGC, without buying a new ticket-provided it is within the time limit (usually 1 hour 30 minutes) and if you don't exit the compound (be aware: if you buy the single ticket, on the bus, for example, you can't use it in the other transports).

Here’s example of travelling on various means of public transportation with the same ticket: if you enter in the metro, your ticket will be marked with one trip. If you then re-enter, the machine will mark another trip (2 trips total).

On the other hand, if you enter in the metro, travel to another station, leave the metro and take a bus, you can use the same ticket without the machine marking a new trip. You can use various means of transportation using the same ticket, if don't exceed the time limit (approximately 1 ½ hours, depending the type of ticket you use).
