You have several options to move, but you will find numerous routes that will take you to different parts of the city. We recommend that you ask our partners in Spain for information about the buses that serve the university campuses. In many cities, there is also a night bus service (sometimes referred to as «owls» or «night owls»). Although they tend to come less frequently, they are very useful if you intend to go out at night.
This is the perfect option if you want to avoid above-ground traffic, and there are metro systems in place in several Spanish cities. This is usually the fastest means of transport for getting from A to B. Check the opening times in each city (as the stations close for a few hours every night). What’s more, if you’re a keen reader, remember that some of the underground stations in networks like the one in Madrid offer a book-borrowing service to make your journey even more enjoyable.
You can either take what is known as the «Cercanías» or suburban commuter railway network for short journeys), or the medium- and long-distance trains if you are planning to explore other parts of the country and want to travel reasonably fast. In fact, many Spanish cities are linked by high-speed trains (AVE). Ask for information to our partners in Spain.
