Ticketing System of the Route 4 of Granada City Buses

Granada’s city bus system is rather complicated. Here we will explain how it works. There are two different types of ticketing systems on Route 4.

In the new Route 4 (old route LAC expanded) you can purchase the bus ticket or buy/pop up your travel card in two different ways: buying or recharging at the stop (in the vending machines before boarding the bus), or paying directly to the driver. This will depend on whether the stop has a vending machine or not.

Route 4 has 31 stops, 19 of these stops have vending machines (those are in the center) and the rest do not.

vending and validating machines at lac bus stop

In these 19 stops that have a vending machine you MUST NOT get on the bus without first buying and validating your ticket or your travel card at the stop. In the rest of the stops of this and other routes, which do not have a vending machine, you MUST enter through the front door and recharge the cards or buy the tickets paying the driver.

How to validate your trip in the vending machine on one of the 19 stops on route 4? It is done by simply placing or passing the card or ticket (which has a bar code) on the screen of the small validating machines.

Pass your card through the screen of the vlidating machines only once (once for each traveler). If you swipe your card twice, you will be charged twice.

You can NOT buy a ticket or a bus pass at press kiosks.

Lost Property

If your lost property is found, you can collect it from the offices of Transportes Rober (Granada City Buses) located in the centre of Granada, in Acera del Darro 30, Los Montes Orientales House, n 22. Here you can also find free bus maps, and make suggestions or complaints about bus services.

What bus number would take me as close as possible to "Aquaola"?
You can go to Aquaola Water Park by Granada city bus number SN1, taking it to a village called Cenes de la Vega. Get off at Plaza de Villacantoria (or Aquaola). It is the first bus stop when you enter Cenes de la Vega. The journey takes approximately 15 minutes.

Bus SN1 passes through the Paseo de Salon and Puerta Real in Granada.

Opinions about Granada City Buses
Nearly impossible for the visitor to work out
We used the buses but it was trial and error. Unbelievably there are no printed bus maps and several different systems so it is nearly impossible for the brief visitor to work out which buses to get.

Also we tried asking for Bono ticket on the bus but never got given one.

Why cant they be available online or at Tourist Info Offices who incidentally are quite ignorant about the buses or any day trips out of the city
