The network of routes mostly runs overground and connects to many Barcelona metro and bus stations. Trains run frequently, and tickets can be bought at station ticket machines on the day of travel. Two children per adult (up to 6 years) can travel for free. If you’re arriving or departing Barcelona on a domestic AVE or long-distance train, check your ticket for a 5-digit Combinado Cercanias code, which is redeemable for a free local ticket from the ticket machines.
