The new bus network
This June three new high-performance bus lines enter service in the network.
A better connected city
A new phase of the new bus network starts on 25 June with the entry into service of three new high-performance lines that join the 20 in operation since 2012. One new conventional bus line will also start running.
When fully operational, in autumn 2018, the Barcelona bus network will comprise a total of 98 lines: 43 conventional urban and intercity lines, 27 Bus del Barri or local buses and 28 high-performance lines.
We are moving forward with the implementation of the new bus network. More routes. Quicker and easier.
New bus lines entering service
- D50 (Paral·lel - Ciutat Meridiana)
- V9 (Poble-sec - Sarrià)
- V33 (Fòrum / Campus Besòs - Santa Coloma)
Changes to routes and stops
The introduction of this new phase will bring about changes to routes and stops.
These new buses will run on the straightest and most direct routes possible, designed to be efficient and logical and easy to use.
Existing bus lines that coincide with new ones will be replaced to avoid repetition and cover straighter routes to be faster and more frequent. In this phase the following buses will cease to operate: 41, 42, 50, 51, 66 and 143.
New stops have been made on these routes, while others have been moved to facilitate operation, bring lines closer together and equal distances between stops. This phase will involve modifications to the following routes: V5, 60, 67 and 24.

The new Barcelona bus map
The bus network is changing with two new vertical lines (V9 and V33), a diagonal line (D50) and 12 interchange hubs to aid connections and intermodality: better links between bus lines and other modes of public transport (metro, FGC, Tram).
