Accessibility details

This website features a section entirely devoted to transport accessibility (alt+2), where you will find the information to get around the city with the Barcelona Card.
Visual impairment
All travel cards and tickets have an indentation or tactile notch on one side to make them easier to validate. This notch must remain on the left-hand side closest to you when passing the ticket through the machine.

There are PA systems inside the Metro carriages and they are being introduced to buses.
Guide dog Tactile elements
Hearing impairment
There is signage for deaf and hearing-impaired users.
Motor impairment
The city transport company operates an extensive fleet of low-floor buses with ramps. This means that wheelchair users can access and alight unaided from most of the buses that serve the city. Some Metro and FGC stations are fully accessible and the older stations are gradually being adapted. The Tram network is fully accessible.
