vending machines to sell tickets of metro in granada The approximate price of an ordinary ticket will be about 1,30 euros. If you buy a travel card the price will be somewhat cheaper, about 80-85 cents. We still have to wait for the official publication of the price by the Junta de Andalucia (the Regional Government).

Each stop will have a vending machine where you can buy the single ticket.

The travel card (the plastic cards) can be bought in three stops: Armilla, Recogidas and Albolote.

The green card of the metropolitan buses can also be used. People who transfer from the metropolitan buses to the Metro will pay a reduced fare.

The ordinary tickets and the travel cards of the urban buses of Granada (red buses and Lac) will not be valid for the metro.
