The Sevillian bus network is very extensive, and it is perhaps the preferred method by the locals. At most stops, you can find NFC service points where you can check waiting times on your mobile along with all kinds of information about the city. There are also screens providing information on the arrival times of the next bus. The entire fleet is monitored by GPS.  


Seville has one metro line. The new, modern light metro crosses the city from East to West (connecting with the metropolitan area). The Metrocentro is the surface version of the metro, which will help you to reach the very heart of Seville: its monumental area. The route itself is a splendid tourist path.
