How to get to the Barcelona-El Prat Airport by public transport

To get to or from Barcelona airport, there is a varied range of public transport by bus, as well as a metro line (T1 and T2 terminals) and a train service run by R2 North line Rodalies de Catalunya (T2 terminal).

Some of the bus routes begin and end at the T1 terminal. Other bus routes and the Rodalies de Catalunya R2 North railway line begin and end only at terminal T2.

There is a free shuttle bus connection between the T1 and T2 terminals.

The integrated tickets offers the chance to link with other networks or types of public transport (metro, tram, the Rodalies de Catalunya and FGC rail services, and metropolitan, inter-urban and night bus services).

By combining these types of public transport, you can travel almost anywhere in Catalonia.
