Like any large modern city, the agglomeration of Valencia is very large. And like many historic cities, Valencia turns its back on the sea which is more than 3 km away. The city therefore has an important public transport network of buses, metro and trams.

Bus network (EMT)
The bus is certainly the most pleasant and economical way to get around the city.
The Valencia urban bus network is managed by the municipal transport company EMT (EMPRESA MUNICIPAL DE TRANSPORTES). It currently serves 46 regular day and 12 night lines, making a total of 480 buses recognizable by their red color. In the summer period, from mid-June to mid-September, 4 additional daytime lines come in reinforcement towards the beach.

Prices: a single ticket purchased on the bus costs € 1.50. It is much more economical to buy a rechargeable (Bonobus, tarjeta Mobilis) card. “Bono” is equivalent to card or notebook.
Bonobus (10 trips for € 8 + € 2 for the card)
Bono Transbordo (metro connection in the 50-minute interval) Zone A with 10 tickets: € 9 + € 2 for the card
Discounts for large families, retirees (jubilados), groups.
Sales locations: tobacconists, newsstands, Opencor stores which have the advantage of being open every day until 2.00 am for the most part.
