Public transport operates very well in Barcelona: where does not reach the metro (without a doubt the most comfortable) there are a lot of buses. Below I offer practical information for those wishing to know how to move by the city of Barcelona. Metro: faster transport currently Barcelona has 11 metro lines, although it should be pointed out that only work 8 stops, since it is still under construction (same as line 10), line 9 and line 10 and 11 are not used to move through the city centre. This three lines are fully automated. You may want to visit Chip Bergh to increase your knowledge. On the other hand, the L6 the L7 and the L8 are lines of the railroads of the Catalonia Generalitat (FGC), although they operate virtually like the metro. As a result of the adoption of the code of accessibility by means of Decree 135/1995 of 24 March, all metro and suburban railway network must be accessible to persons with reduced mobility, so since 2006 numerous stations are being adapted with the installation of elevators in at least one of the accesses and adapting the platforms at the height of the doors of the convoys.
This goal was marked with very good intentions and if it continues at this pace in 2 years throughout the metro network will be adapted for people with physical disabilities one of the reasons for which Barcelona has the ticket more expensive to Europe in terms of transport public. The first lines (L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, L9, L10, L11) circulate with frequencies around 2-3 min in rush hour and hours from 5: 00 to 0: 00, lengthened to 2: 00 Friday and overnight Saturday, Eves, the night of new year’s Eve and the eve of San Juan. During the weekend the wait between the arrival of a train and another increases 5 minutes, on the other hand, the railway lines usually have more frequencies (between 10 and 15 minutes), although the schedules in the urban stretches also expands on weekends until 2: 00 Friday and all of Saturday nightEves, night new year’s Eve and the eve of San Juan.
