It will provide links to more detailed pages and give details on locations, prices, contact details and journey times.

Buses in Valencia City

Taking buses around Valencia will offer you the opportunity to get around the city whilst seeing the sights as you travel. It is important to remember that when you are taking the bus you will need to be reasonably independent - you will not necessarily know when you need to get off the bus so it can be more intimidating than catching the metro.

If you decide to travel by bus, it is worth considering buying combined tickets that will allow you to take the bus as well as the tram and the metro (see below for more details). The options include the Valencia tourist card or the Integrated Transport Ticket.

Bus ticket prices:
Single journey: €1.50
