Being located in a valley, the city had to expand beyond the slopes of the hills that surround it. Thus, there is a system of funiculars and elevators that connect the city centre with neighbourhoods like Begoña or Artxanda.
Most of them offer great eye-bird views of the city, in particular the one from the top of the Artxanda Mount.

This is Easy, bus goes every 30 minutes from the airport to San Mames Bus Station, so plenty of time for many beers in the airport! Cost 1.10 euros... bargain! Beware on the round trip to the airport the bus does not leave from the bus station, it leave from the main round about in the centre of Bilbao (not far away, two stops via metro!)

If you are going to be traveling all around Bilbao you´ll probably have to take different transports.
If I were you I would buy a 5, 10 or 15€ Creditrans ticket depending on your needs.
The price of the travel will be dicounted from the ticket in each travel and more than one people can travel with the same ticket if you discount the credit from the Creditrans ticket.
You´ll pay less money for the same travel with the Creditrans.
It can be used with the following transports:
* Metro Bilbao
* Tranvia Bilbao
* Bilbo Bus
* Bizkai Bus
* Artxanda funicular.
* Hanging Bridge
* Lujua Buses

The Euskotren network is a predominantly commuter setup providing easy access into the centre of the town (focused on the station in the Casco Viejo with a metro interchange, but also running from Artxuri).
A word of warning, no destination maps are shown in the train carriages, so you have to pay attention to the stations!

The FEVE terminal is located by the River (opposite the Theatre Arriaga) and close to Abando (RENFE) Station).
FEVE was originally set up to supply raw materials to the industrial cities of the north.
FEVE provides commuter access to local villages, going as far as Balmaseda.
There are even trains as far as Leon.
Be warned though:
a) FEVE trains are SLOW (12 hours to Leon)
b) FEVE trains stop at every lampost
c) FEVE trains often have no toilets or buffets

Bizkaia buses provide frequent and cheap travel in Vizcaya. The buses go out to Gernika, Elantxobe, and other towns and villages.
The yellow buses/coaches are part of the creditrans network. The buses leave from all over Bilbao (there does not appear to be one central terminal) so best to check the website for routes.
