In 2004 Barcelona rebuilt some of its long vanished tram system, choosing to invest in this quick, silent and pollution free from of transport.
– TheTrambaix (T1, T2, T3) which joins Plaça Francesc Macià with towns including Sant Just Desvern, Sant Joan Despí and Cornellà.
– TheTrambesòs (T4, T5, T6) runs from Villa Olímpica to Badalona or Sant Adrià, passing through Plaça de les Glòries and the Fórum.
Tickets can be bought either at a tram stop or from machines situated in the entrance to metro stations.
As well as single tickets there are various kinds of other tickets, the most interesting for short term visitors are:
1.T-10 card: this is valid for 10 trips and can be used by more than one person.
2.Cards that offer unlimited use, for anything from 1 to 5 days. These may only be used by one individual.
Currently there are six routes operating on two main lines which connect the city centre with important commercial, industrial and residential areas on the outskirts of the city.
It is recommendable to check the current prices of tickets on the official web page of the Barcelona metro system to check which option will suit you best during your stay in Barcelona. You can see all the different kinds of tickets and their prices here.
Tickets are valid for the tram, metro, bus, urban light railway (FGC) and cercania trains (local light rail).
