For many decades, Barcelona had embraced the Tram, however by the early 1970’s an unfortunate decision to terminate all Trams in Barcelona was carried out. Still, this mistake was rectified in 2004, when the Tram officially returned.
Currently there are two main Tram lines, the Trambaix, that goes from Francesc Macià Square in Diagonal Avenue, up until Cornellà de Llobregat with lines T1, T2 and T3.
The Trambesós goes across from Ciutadella Villa Olímpica right by the Barcelona Zoo to Glòries square to the Port Olímpic, up until the Fòrum and Badalona, with lines T4, T5 and T6.
The section between Francesc Macià and Glòries is still not covered by this service and it’s uncertain if this project will ever take place.
Unfortunately the Tram in Barcelona doesn’t cover the whole city, it works as a link between the Metro network and some areas of the city not well connected in the past. However, the service is extremely modern, works smoothly and it’s very pleasant to use.
To use the Tram you need the same regular ticket you would use for the Metro or Bus, and there are vending machines on every station, credit and debit cards accepted as well as cash.

Historic Blue Tram in Barcelona. Picture by Ivan Mlinaric
There is a historic Tram line that still works in Barcelona, connecting the stretch between Tibidabo Avenue and the Tibidabo Funicular, called the Blue Tram.
Dating from the turn of the 20th century, is the only old Tram line working in Barcelona, and it’s a fantastic experience to start your journey to Tibidabo mountain by taking this historic route. Take notice that this line is also operated by the Barcelona transport network, but it costs a separate fee of 3€ (one way) or 4,70€ (round trip).
