Tram in Barcelona

The newest (and greenest) public transportation in Barcelona is the tram, present in two different areas of the city: Trambaix (which goes from Barcelona to Sant Adrià del Besòs and Badalona) and Trambesòs (which goes from Barcelona to L’Hospitalet del Llobregat, Esplugues de Llobregat, Cornellà de Llobregat, Sant Joan d’Espí, Sant Just Desvern, and Sant Feliu de Llobregat). As Barcelona has an integrated ticketing system, you can use the same ticket for the tram as you do for the metro and bus.

Tickets for the Tram in Barcelona

Tickets can be purchased at tram stations from machines. However, these tickets are the same as those for the metro and buses in Barcelona. So, if you have a Hola Barcelona Travel Card or a Barcelona Card, or a T-Casual (ten-trip card) purchased in the metro, you can also use it for the tram. The ticket validation machine is located inside the tram. There is no need to check out when exiting the tram.

Tips for the Tram in Barcelona

  • If you are traveling with a child under 4 years old, you do not need to buy a ticket for them. Children younger than 4 years old travel free on public transportation in Barcelona. It’s worth carrying proof of your child’s birth date, such as an ID card or a copy of the passport.
  • At some tram stations in Barcelona, there are gates at the entrance. At these stations, you need to stamp your card at the access gate instead of when you board the tram.
  • The trams are very well equipped for disabled travelers: there are special doors with a disability symbol on them, the tram entrance is at the same level as the tram platform, and there are special places in each carriage with space for a wheelchair or scooter.
  • The tram provides ample space for wheelchairs, bicycles, and strollers.
  • The tram is a great way to discover the city beyond the beaten path. It covers areas outside the metro and bus routes and is often overlooked by tourists.
