In short, zone 1 corresponds to the whole city of Barcelona and the municipalities closest to it, featuring cities such as Badalona, L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Montgat, Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Castelldefels and Montcada i Reixac, among others.

In terms of the other zones, zone 2 is the next zone closest to Barcelona and as the distance of the towns from the city of Barcelona increases, the zone number to which this city belongs increases.

The time to use the same integrated transport ticket varies according to the zone, being 1h15 for zone 1 and increasing by 15 minutes for each extra zone.

A transport ticket also allows you to use different bus lines during the set time.
