Barcelona’s bus network is often overlooked by tourists. If you take some time to plan your route, it can save you considerable time and is often cooler and less cramped than the metro in high season. Operated by TMB, the same company that runs the metro, you can use the same ticket for the metro and Tram. The other added advantage of using the bus is that you get your Barcelona bearings far quicker and will often discover sights on your wish list on the way. Something to keep in mind when travelling on the bus is to count the number of stops while travelling. The stops are sometimes not announced inside the bus so it’s easy to over-shoot your destination.
