XPRESBus, the new bus fast line service
The first XPRESBus line, X1, came into service in September 2021.
Unlike other lines, XPRESBus line are marked in black for identification.
Designed with a very fast route, the X1 Line has right of way in traffic and fewer stops, enabling a faster and more frequent service.
The departure stops for the XPRESBus X1’s first commercial services are at Diagonal - Francesc Macià and Mercat dels Encants, next to Plaça de les Glòries.
This new efficient bus line, with a service every 8 minutes and few stops, is aimed at attracting new public transport users with a route that connects the Llobregat and Besòs tram terminals to the heart of Eixample in 10 minutes.
Its launch represented an extension of the TMB bus network, as XPRESBus lines were incorporated into other lines already in service, such as local, conventional and high-performance lines.
The X1 is one of the lines equipped for the payment of the single ticket by credit card.
