Public transport and sustainability in Barcelona
As you well know, public transport and sustainability in Barcelona play a vital role in the evolution and development of the city. It is for this reason that at TheUrbanSuites we want to do our bit and raise awareness of how important it is and what role each of us has in this progress. Unfortunately, the level of contamination in recent years has increased radically. However, provinces, governments and countries have started to identify new threats (in addition to those already existing) and plan new projects in order to improve the environment in the coming years and design areas of greater sustainability. In the case of Barcelona, public transport is fundamental where, in addition to providing us with a wide variety of different types of transport with different lines and routes, they invite us to get un-used to the massive use of private transport and thus progress in a sustainable manner. From our aparthotel in Barcelona we constantly promote sustainable actions in order to achieve the already established projects. In this way, we invite you to be part of a project to improve the environment. Furthermore, we must not forget that each one of us is involved in the development of these actions and what better way than to participate collectively and make this planet a better place. To finish, we want to show you the different types of public transport in Barcelona:
1. Train – Rodalies de Catalunya
Rodalies de Catalunya is a commuter and medium-distance rail service whose commercial brand is currently used by the Generalitat de Catalunya and Renfe Operadora. It currently has a large fleet of trains and operates with different lines and routes. In Barcelona, the train stations to highlight would be the following:
- Sant Andreu Arenal
- La Sagrera Meridiana
- El Clot Aragó
- Arc de Triomf
- Plaça de Catalunya
- Estación Barcelona Sants
2. Barcelona Metro
The Barcelona metro is made up of a metropolitan railway network in the city of Barcelona which also connects with the municipalities that make up the metropolitan area. It currently has a total of 11 lines which facilitate transportation and access to each of the key points in Barcelona.
For more information we provide access to each of the different metro lines:
3. FGC – Ferrocarriles of the Generalitat of Catalonia
The FGC stands out for being one of the most efficient collective transports at an energy level and emits really low polluting emissions. In addition to having a large fleet and different routes, the waiting times on the platforms are relatively short.
4. Bus – Barcelona Metropolitan Transport
TMB is in charge of offering and managing urban bus services in Barcelona and its services connect with the city and its surroundings. As a curious fact, its seats show one of the main blocks of Barcelona where La Diagonal (one of the largest and most important avenues in Barcelona) is reflected.
These are currently the most used and recommended types of public transport in the Barcelona district and, for this reason, we invite you to be part of this sustainable movement. Do you know new or other types of sustainable transport in Barcelona? Share it with us!
