! Spanish News Today – These are the Spanish cities with the cheapest public transport after further government cuts

Publication date: 07/09/2022

City bus fares will be reduced by at least 30% across Spain until the end of the year

There are, however, certain stipulations: passengers must buy their tickets in advance and pay a deposit of up to 20 euros, depending on the service. This sum will be reimbursed provided that a total of 16 trips are made before the end of December this year.

Curious to see where passengers got the most bang for their buck with the new discounts, the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) conducted a study of 50 regional capitals, in addition to the autonomous North African cities of Ceuta and Melilla. . They compared the cost of making 50 regular city bus trips against the price with the new system, and some of the results were surprising.

The cheapest public transport is by far Albacete in Castilla-La Mancha, only 7.50 euros, followed by neighbors Ciudad Real (10 euro) and Logrono in La Rioja (13.23 euros).

Next on the list is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (14 euros), in front Cuenca, Guadalajara and Vitoriaall at 15 euros.

At the other end of the scale, passengers pay the most for urban transport in the Galician province of vigofollowed by the cities of Huesca and Oviedo. Grenade and Alicante are not far behind, but the real wild card of the group is the Spanish capital.

Prior to the introduction of the government discount, Madrid was, perhaps unsurprisingly, the most expensive city in Spain for public transport. By applying a 50% discount, he managed to drop the rankings significantly to seventh place.
