Buses that Link Alhambra, Sacromonte and Albaycin and the City CentreAlhambra Bus provides services which, owing to the city's special geographical features, cannot be developed by the ordinary (long) Urban Transport Service.
Alhambra Bus (and Transportes Rober) manages the four urban transport routes known as touristic routes, since they link the city with the Alhambra, Sacromonte and Albayzin.
These are the routes C30 (Alhambra - Centre), C31 (Albaycin - Centre), C32 (Alhambra - Albaycin), C34 (Sacromonte - Centre).

Opinions about Beauty Spots in Granada
C2 and C3 have been terrificAs a lone, older, female traveler I felt safe riding your buses. They were fairly handy for me in my travel around the area, especially since my hotel is only handy to Alhambra on foot. (I'm staying at the Alixares).
Tonight I had a problem with bus#144. I let the driver know I needed off at Alhambra. He did not stop! And I was not getting off at the next stop that was too far for me to walk from and it was dark!
I just stayed on the bus until it was at Plaza Isabela. Then I got off and took a taxi to my hotel.
I don't read Spanish and most of the drivers don't speak much English so I paid full fare each and every time I rode the bus -no benefit of a travel like in Madrid.
Anyway, though you should know. It kind of spoiled my last night here...otherwise I probably would have rated the service 5 star.
(LG: if you take urban buses several times, it is better to buy a travel card, each trip would be 40% cheaper than buing a single ticket).
C2 and C3 have been terrificThe c2 and c3 buses have been terrific. We are tourists and have been very pleased.
Good Bus DriversVery pleased with the helpful and patient bus drivers, thank you from a tourist that doesn't speak Spanish and appreciated their patience.
Good Bus DriversThank you to your bus driver, Ruben, on route 30, bus 142 on Monday, Feb 3. He saved us from a vacation disaster by finding and returning our car keys which we dropped on his bus. He also refused a reward. A truly valuable employee and an excellent representative of your city. Please thank him once more for us!! (Kathleen).
