Transportation in and around Sevilla
Getting from the airport to the city:
You can get to the airport from the city center via bus. There is a bus that runs out to the airport every 30 minutes, starting at 6:15 AM and running until 11 PM. You can pick up the bus on either side of Calle Palos de la Frontera, Avenido de Carlos V, El Prado de San Sebastián, the Santa Justa station and Avenida Kansas City. It is also possible to take a taxi, the prices of which are fixed and typically run around 18 euro. The ride to the airport will take about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on traffic.
Sevilla’s city buses are painted an unmistakable bright orange and red and provide a great option for transportation around the city. Information about the different routes, timetables and special services can be found on the TUSSAM website. Night buses are also available after midnight, departing from Plaza Nueva. Individual tickets can be purchased on the bus, but a more convenient option for frequent riders is the bonobus. This is good for 10 rides. TUSSAM also offers special passes for students and tourists.
Taxis are easy to find and relatively cheap in Sevilla, with the exception of Easter Week, Feria and the Christmas season. The rates are constant during the daytime, but be careful because they often increase at night and during holidays.
Discovering Andalucia and Spain:
The train is a great option for getting around to other Andalucian towns and villages, as well as to other regions in Spain. The high-speed train, called the AVE, connects Sevilla to Madrid with only two stops, making the journey roughly two and a half hours. The AVE is a more expensive option, though there are discounts available up to 25% for round-trip voyages or for students. The main train station in Sevilla is Santa Justa on Kansas City Ave. More information about times and prices can be found on renfe.es.
An inter-rail ticket provides a cheaper option for traveling throughout Spain and all of Europe. The inter-rail ticket allows for travel through 17 European countries, divided into 8 zones. Choose a zone to travel within, and you will be able to buy a pass good for twelve days or one to two months for an unlimited number of trains. Further information can be found at raileurope.com.
When around Andalucia, the most flexible option is probably taking a bus. Buses run more frequently than the trains, cost less, and pass through the smaller villages. For bus travel within Andalucia, use the Prado De San Sebastián Station. For buses to the rest of Spain, the province of Huelva, and international destinations, you can buy tickets at the Plaza de Armas Station. You can purchase a Eurolines pass for unlimited bus travel at a fixed price. Further information on Eurolines can be found at eurolines.es.
