barcelona bus routes---any maps?


Going to barcelona for 12 days, and been trying to find any sites that have a simple bus route map, but none came up yet. I know in london there is a map that has mainly the tourist attractions, and it had the bus routes that go thru them. Anybody know if Barcelona has something similar? And yes, i know the metro is faster, and better, but many times i love getting on the buses as is a nice way to see the city, watch the locals! :)

thanks in advance

Try this site for public transportation:


Barcelona is a very walkable city. The Bari Gothic is best seen on foot.

I'm interested to know if there is a website that has all the bus routes mapped out. This would be helpful to plan out trips. I've looked at TMB's website but it only shows individual routes.

I re-read my post and thought I probably wasn't clear. I'm looking for a map that has all the local bus routes mapped on it.

not sure it exists, and it any case it wil be really confusing. There are many bus lines and teh city centre is very compact, so all lines put togheter make a HUGE map (like the one on display at the bus stops, still difficult to read)

You can search line by line at



Or, even better, search transport options from A to B here


and check the touristy routes here


Mos sight are walking distance

hope it helps!

Hi Perseus.

The tourist office in Pl Catalunya can give you a map with all the lines on it. There are 86 I think, many of which are really helpful. (I appreciate that you want to see one before you get there). Clearly you can cross-reference this with the free tourist map (or just draw the sights onto the bus guide). :O)

The metro ticket includes bus travel.

I would advise you to use the Barri buses also. These are small district buses (the 116 serves Parc Guell rather well) which are great fun for seeing how locals really do things.

Have fun!
