Cross-border public transport for just 1€? Molt bé !*
|*Molt bé = ‘very good’ in Catalan|
Great news, travel junkies! The powers that be have given the go-ahead for cross-border transport, and at just 1€ per journey you can border hop as often as you like this summer.
The famous regional 1€ bus has helped many of us get out and about across the P-O and even further afield in Occitanie, but after a successful trial period, 5 new cross-border lines have been implemented to link North and South Catalonia.
The project ConnECT has been a little stop-start over previous years, but the hope is that the lines will run continuously and permanently.
Fancy a flaunt in Figuerès? A jolly in Girona? You can even have a blast in Barcelona!
