Andalucía Transportation

  • City Bus

    Sevilla Transportation

    A few VTers have said they have no problem taking a subway or metro but they find buses too difficult. While I can understand their concerns, Sevilla's bus system is well laid out and inexpensive. Sevilla's bus system is run by Tussam, a local company. Tussam operates about 40 daily bus routes and a tram line. Once we learned how they worked it...

  • BUSES

    Granada Transportation

    I do like the way one can pay the driver on ordinary Spanish buses...it makes life so much easier than having to find a newsagent/whatever where one can buy tickets! So....you've arrived at Granada bus station and you don't want to take a taxi onwards (there are plenty of taxis waiting outside the bus station entrance)? OK, that's easy...

  • By train

    Cadiz Transportation

    If you are over 60 years old [ young? ] you can buy a Tarjeta Dorada ticket for 5-15 euro at rail station ticket offices in Spain. It has your passport number on it and is the size of a bank credit card. So when buy a rail ticket in Spain just show your Tarjeta Dorada card and you will recieve at least 25% reduction depending on the day of the...

  • Trains from Jerez

    Jerez de la Frontera Transportation

    From Jerez to Madrid There are only 2 trains directly from Jerez to Madrid. One is a morning train and has no discount - very expensive. The evening train gets into Madrid after 2100. Even with the discount on this one it is more expensive than if you take two trains. You can get a good cup of coffee and something to eat in the breakfast room...

  • Santa Justa station

    Sevilla Transportation

    Santa Justa is the train station in Seville, and it's in the Nervion district. There are trains connecting Seville to many cities and towns in Andalusia and beyond. I took a train to go to Jerez de la Frontera for the Feria del Caballo (horse fair), and the ride wasn't very long. I spent the day there and came back on the last train of the evening.

  • BY CAR

    Granada Transportation

    The complexity and narrowness of the streets of the Albayzin will drive you madly around in circles if you do not have a GPS. I do believe that we would still be driving around if not for the following tip..... tail one of the city busses that squeeze through the streets of the Albayzin. They will take you to the central city and out of the maze....

  • By Bus

    Cadiz Transportation

    As far as I could see there was only one bus from La Linea at 0700, unless you want to travel in the evening. There are a couple of others from Algeciras, so that would mean getting the local service from La Linea to Algeciras. I think it is timetabled at 40 minutes ish, but I would allow at least an hour. And then you have to queue in Algeciras...

    Cadiz Transportation

    Getting from El Puerto de Santa Maria to Cadiz by car looked like a big hassle with traffic to reach the city via either the bridge over Bahia de Cadiz or up the congested motorway along the long peninsula on which the city is built - not to mention parking issues. As a result, we decided to just leave our car dock-side at El Puerto and take one of...

  • AVE Rail

    Sevilla Transportation

    Seville is now accessible by a modern line connecting to Madrid by AVE. Taking less than 3 hours, it is not cheap, costing more than 70€. Vueling flies for almost the same price and gives you extra time to look around, for instance, the old and beautiful train station, now transformed in a shopping mall.

So there are minibuses to serve those areas, including the route up to the Alhambra itself. Minibuses start from Catedral, the stop on Gran Via de Colon to the rear of the cathedral. They have their own special stop....it's not the...

  • Taxis

    Sevilla Transportation

    It's easy to hail a cab if you're on one of the major roads in Seville (such as Menendez Pelayo - I often hailed cabs from there). Just a few warnings - if you're young and female (and especially if you're wearing something sexy), some cab drivers might try to creep on you. Also, if you try to call a cab and get one to come to you, they might not...

    Jerez de la Frontera Transportation

    To get from the train station to the fairgrounds of the Feria del Caballo, I took a taxi. On the way back to the station, I walked since I didn't want to spend more money on a cab and the driver of the one I took was rude.

  • Horse & Buggy Ride

    Sevilla Transportation

    Several cities in the world have carriages to a brief circuit. I think that Seville is one of the most suitable to justify its use. Most monuments are seen just passing by, and the small area covered by the main attractions eases the way. However, I love to walk, always the best way to travel - if with time.

    Cadiz Transportation

    The nearest airport to the capital is in the town of Jerez, 50 kms away via highway. It is an international airport, though medium size. From the airport there is NO bus to Cadiz. You can take a taxi to Jerez Center and there take a bus/train to Cadiz. Or take a taxi to Cadiz directly, for about 10 euros

    If you're arriving by car in Jerez, beware that driving around is a bit of a nightmare - be prepared to get lost and do a few of those three point turns and u-turns!! Signs and directions aren't that great and there are quite a few one way streets and pedestrianised areas to confuse things further. In fact, just trying to get to the centre of town...

  • On Foot

    Sevilla Transportation

    I found Sevilla a lot of fun to walk around. Many of the streets are narrow and can be confusing for sure so you have to be paying attention. That is kind of the hard part because there is plenty of other activity going on around you. I remember walking through Sevilla and seeing a lot of the merchants closing up for the mid afternoon siesta.
