New bus network
Three high performance bus routes are coming into service on the network this June.
A better connected city
The latest phase of the new bus network came into operation on 25 June with the introduction of three new high performance routes to add to the 20 routes that have been introduced since 2012. A new conventional route has also been added.
When the latest phase is completed in the autumn of 2018, the Barcelona bus network will consist of a total of 98 routes: 43 conventional urban and inter-urban routes, 27 Bus del Barri or neighborhood routes and 28 high performance routes.
We are moving forward with the implementation of the new bus network. More routes. Quicker and easier.
New routes coming into service
- D50 (Paral·lel - Ciutat Meridiana)
- V9 (Poble-sec - Sarrià)
- V33 (Fòrum / Campus Besòs - Santa Coloma)
Changes and amendments to routes and stops
The introduction of this new phase brings with it changes to current routes and stops.
These new routes are as direct and straight as possible, designed to be more efficient and logical and always taking into account user comfort and ease.
Existing routes that coincide with new ones will be substituted to avoid duplication and to follow straighter lines to guarantee a speedier and more regular service. In this phase the following routes will completely disappear: 41, 42, 50, 51 66 and 143.
With regard to changes in stops, new ones have been constructed and others have been moved to favor bus mobility, to shorten the distance between route interchanges and to even out the distance between stops. In this phase the following routes will be modified: V5, 24, 60 and 67.

The new Barcelona bus route map
The bus network has been transformed by adding two new vertical routes (V9 and V33), a diagonal one (D50) and 12 interchange areas to facilitate connectivity and changing modes of transport: the connection between other bus routes and other forms of public transport (metro, FGC, Tram, etc.) has been improved.
Take a look at what the new bus network map looks like.
