Public transport services are financed by income from the sale of tickets and subsidies from administrative bodies. Report on the data regarding the income and expenses of the system.
The ATM acts as the financial body behind the metropolitan public transport system, guaranteeing resources for financing the public transport of passengers in the area of the integrated fare system.
One the one hand it obtains the subsidies that the administrative bodies (Government of Catalonia, Barcelona City Council, and Barcelona Metropolitan Area) formalised in a financing agreement for the period 2014-2017. The General State Government (AGE) also participates in the financing through a nominative annual contribution (since 2014 as part of the Law for the General State Budget).
On the other hand the ATM obtains the income corresponding to the sale of integrate transport travel cards.
