The local buses were easy to use & seemed to run frequently.
To take the bus out of the city the main bus station is next to Maria Zambrano train station but there is also a smaller terminus near the port

If you are arriving at Malaga airport you can take the electric train either into Malaga itself or in the other direction to some of the Costa Del Sols main resorts such as Fuengirola. Malaga's main station Maria Zambrano is only a few stops away & the last stop is Malaga Central.
Tickets can be bought from the machines at the entrance, which are very easy to use. You can change the language easily if Spanish isn't your first language. It only costs about 1.65Euros from the airport into Malaga.
It seemed you could also take a train to the town of Ronda on this line but we didn't have time on this trip.
If you wish to travel on to or do a day trip to other Spanish cities such as Madrid or Seville trains for these destinations leave from the main train station of Maria Zambrano

We flew from Glasgow Prestwick to Malaga Airport with Ryanair. There are plenty of flights here since the airport serves all the Costa Del Sol resorts as well as Malaga city itself. There are 3 terminals and our flights were from terminal 2. However the security control is only in Terminal 3 so if, like us, you just have hand luggage you can just go straight through.
The train station can be reached from Terminal 3

If you want to have a memory of a romantic ride with a horse carriage, and maybe a companion with you, this is it. There are horse drawn carriages right in the middle of traffic along Paseo del Parque and Marques del Larios. The ride is around 30-40 minutes, and cost is 30-40 Euro.
Is it worth it? NOT

This bus is available at the main station for local buses. It has a tour cycle of 80 minutes to all stops along the guided way; a quick on/off for a lot of places. The buses operate every 30 minutes, and cost an astounding 17 Euro for an adult. The price is way too steep for me, and we did not take it to Gibralfaro and the to of the hill

This bus takes you to and from the Gibralfaro Fortress. You can get most buses from Alameda Principal and the cost per ride is .85 cents in Euro. They run about every 1/2 hour to the site on top of the hill

The cercanía is the commuter train service that runs around parts of Málaga and the towns/villages near by. It has two lines the C1 and the C2. The C1 is especially useful as it goes to the airport. It costs about €1.50 from the airport to the centre of the city (sometimes the cost is a little more or less, depending on the time and day).
Line 1 -
Benalmádena-Arroyo de la Miel
Line 2 -

Just back from a fantastic holiday near Malaga.
Our only gripe is the taxi service (con?) at Malaga airport. We were "poached" by Malaga Taxis, aka Spain Shuttle SL and a shark called Carlo Piran. They were holding up our name card at airport arrivals hall and escorted us into their taxis when we had already pre-paid with another company. Either they copied our name from the genuine taxi driver or this is an organised con. We ended up paying twice with no refund from either company.
Be warned and double check that the taxi driver picking you up is from the company you booked with! In any case, please do me a favour and steer clear of Malaga Taxi, Spain Shuttle SL and Carlo Piran!
Our return transfer was provided by Suntransfers.com and their service, price, cars and drivers were perfect.

Trains run every 30 minutes between Malaga city centre and Fuengirola, stopping at Malaga Airport, Torremolinos, Benalmadena (Arroyo de la Miel) and several smaller stops en route.
Timetables can be found HERE
The following information was correct as at February 2011:
Trains leave Malaga Centro-Alameda on the hour and half past the hour from 05:30 – 22:30.
While Malaga Centro-Alameda is the final station on the line, and the shortest walking distance from the city centre, Maria Zambrano is actually the major station in the city with shops, food outlets and luggage storage. Maria Zambrano is the penultimate station on the line, around 3 minutes along the line from Malaga Centro-Alameda. We made the mistake of getting off at Centro-Alameda (despite the train having almost emptied at Maria Zambrano) and then had to walk back to Maria Zambrano to store our luggage for the day.
Malaga Airport is some distance out of Malaga, about half way between Malaga and Torremolinos.
Malaga Maria Zambrano to Malaga Airport takes 14 minutes and costs 1.55 Euro
Malaga Centro-Alameda to Torremolinos takes 27 minutes and is slightly more expensive at 1.65 Euros
Malaga Airport to Torremolinos takes 11 minutes and costs 1.55 Euros
Trains are modern, with TV screens on board that show the name of the next stop and the time to the next stop. Additionally, stops are announced in both Spanish and English.
Tickets can be purchased from interactive touch-screen machines at each station. You can choose from several language options available on screen, machines accept both notes and coins and change is given.
Use your ticket to enter the platform via a turnstile (which validates your ticket). Note: keep your ticket at hand as you'll need it at the end of your journey to exit the turnstile at your destination station.
