Barcelona bus schedules
TMB offers a full day bus service from Mondays to Sundays. Some routes operate based on frequency of service and others on a fixed timetable. You can access detailed information about each route in the Bus Barcelona section. You will find information on the schedule for each bus stop by clicking on the name of the stop.
Adherence to these timings is subject to prevalent local traffic conditions. Service frequency is approximate.
You need to bear in mind that:
- Bus route timetables vary according to the types of day of the week: working day, Saturday or public holiday. If none of these options appear, the route does not run on that type of day (there are bus routes that do not operate on Saturdays or public holidays and others, conversely, that only operate on public holidays).
- Once you have chosen the route and the type of day, information will appear on the timetable or frequency of service according to different time slots during the day.
- If the route operates based on a timetable it will show an approximate time for the bus to pass the selected stop. That is why it is advisable to specifically check your chosen stop to obtain the correct information.
- For routes based on service frequency, the timings of the first and last buses to leave the bus terminal will be given. For the remainder of the day, the anticipated frequency will be dictated by time slots, also using the departure time from the bus terminal as a reference.
- On 24 December, Christmas Eve, TMB buses will make their last journeys from their originating points at 22:00.
Night service and interurban service
During the night, the company Nitbus offers a nocturnal bus service within Barcelona and as far as the first metropolitan ring with 17 routes. All routes except N0 go through Plaça de Catalunya, where it is possible to transfer between routes.
The interurban bus service connects Barcelona with the rest of the municipalities in the metropolitan area. Consult the timetables of the different operators using the browser of the Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB) website.
