How to enter the train? Are there any reserved areas?

double doors on granada tram You can enter or leave the train through any door.

There is an area on each train reserved for people in wheelchair or with baby strollers.

Use the double doors to access these areas that are located next to them.

You can take your bike on to a train when there are not many people.

What is better, to use the metro or to travel by buses?

urban bus in triunfo The metro does not reach the majority of the tourist attractions of Granada and the metro card cannot be used on the city buses.

You would need to buy two travel cards, one for the metro and another one for the buses. Also the money left on the cards (trips/money not used) will not be returned.

It is more practical for a tourist (who is only visiting Granada) to use only the city buses (unless you need to go to the villages Albolote or Armilla).

The fares for travel on buses and the metro are similar, and by bus you can get to all the tourist attractions.

Opinions about Granada Metro
Too expensive
A system too expensive and poorly made. I bought a card to use the metropolitan of Granada and I can't use it on city buses: how is that possible? I can not believe it... :( (opinion of a French tourist)
Granada metro
We have waited years for the metro to open but it does not seem as though it is useful for this purpose and Granada Railway Station only has one train route running at present (for 4 years I understand?).

Some advice on this might be useful, especially for drivers who would be reluctant to drive the confusing and narrow roads of Granada? (Seamus)
