The schedule of the light metro in Seville is very flexible, making it easier for tourists and locals to take public transportation at almost any part of their day.
From Monday to Thursday, the metro operates from 6:30 am to 11:00 pm.
On Fridays, the metro operates from 6:30 am to 2:00 am.
On Saturdays, the metro operates from 7:30 am to 2:00 am.
On Sundays and holidays, the metro operates from 7:30 am to 11:00 pm.
The pricing method in Seville’s metro works a bit differently than the metros in Madrid and Barcelona. I will create a chart for you to make this public transport’s pricing as clear as possible.
On top of that, you should know that the L1 in Seville is divided into three parts. So, when you buy a ticket, the machine will give you the option to choose between “0 Jumps = no change of section”, “1 Jump = change to 1 section”, and “2 Jumps = change between 2 sections”.
Besides that, the rest of the tickets are pretty simple to understand, and their respective pricing will appear in the chart below.
1,35 € for “o jumps”, 1,60 € “1 jump” and 1,80 € “2 jumps”.
2,70 € “o jumps”, 3,20 € “1 jump” and 3,60 € “2 jumps” (valid for an hour and a half)
4,50€ (unlimited trips and jumps until the system closes)
Plus 45 Bonus:
30 € “o jumps”, 42 € “1 jump”, and 50 € “2 jumps” (able to do 45 trips in 30 days)
10 € - 50 € (personal card)
The tram in Seville is a public transport system that goes around the heart of the city center. The tram runs 2.2 km and has only five stops:
Archivo de Indias
Puerta de Jerez
The tram is locally known as “The Metro Centro” and is the perfect transportation option for those who need to move around the most important landmarks of Seville.
The tram is an easy transportation system to use, is affordable, and, as I mentioned before, is the perfect system if you want to avoid walking from time to time in the city.
The tram opens Monday to Sunday from 6:00 am to 1:30 am.
The price for visitors without the local tram card is 1,40€.
The trams has round tickets availables, but trust me on this one, Seville is a beautiful city to walk, so if at any moment you need the tram, just get the single ticket.
Seville bus system works all over the city, and it will take you anywhere you need to, from the airport to the train station of Santa Justa.
Raise or wave your hand to the bus driver. Otherwise, they might not stop to get you.
The bus system has 55 lines operating across Seville, with the main station in Prado de San Sebastián.
Important buses to consider:
Lines 21 and 32 will take you from Santa Justa train station to the city center.
Line C5 will get you around the main landmarks.
Line EA takes you to the airport.
Buses in Seville usually operate from 5:30 am to 11:30 pm. However, remember to check the timetables on the station’s screens or in apps such as Google Maps or Moovit.
The bus tickets in Seville are simpler than the light metro or the light. Alongside the tram, buses in Seville are another great option to move around the city center.
The hop-on hop-off is another great bus option to get to know Seville. If it is your first time in the city, a Hop-on Hop-off bus will give you all the historical insights you need to get to know the city in one or two days.
The price for an adult is 25€, for a kid is 13€, and for babies between 0 and 4 years old, hop on for free.
Uber is a private transportation system in Seville that I would only recommend if you visit the city during April’s fair or, as I said before if you have to travel longer distances, such as the way to the airport or the train station of Santa Justa.
To use this system, just download the app on your phone, and voilà! But I recommend you stick to the bus or tram as they are more efficient and affordable.
Remember to change the address in the app! It happened to me once when I wanted to order an Uber in a different city and got a message about no availability. The problem was that I hadn’t changed the address to the one where I was staying.
Bicycles can be a great choice to move and get to know a new city but do so if you can truly handle riding with the traffic and unknown streets of a city you barely know.
With this said, Sevici is the official bicycle service from the municipality of Seville. It is pretty simple to use; you download an app on your phone, create an account and choose the plan you wish to contract.
As a tourist in Seville, choosing a short-term plan is recommended; depending on the days you will be traveling to Seville, you can choose between the weekly or daily fee.
The first 30 minutes of the daily ticket are free! And the bicycles are available 24/7.
Download the app! The website of Sevici says that you can log in using their website or app, but I recommend you download the app and do everything from there. Doing so the day you get to Seville, so you have it ready whenever you need it.
Seville might be the fourth biggest city in Spain, but you can mostly walk to all the important landmarks and attractions.
I hope this guide on getting around Seville with public transportation is useful for your next trip! Don’t be afraid to ask for directions when needed; Sevillians are very friendly and open to help!
