Commuter trains in Spain ( Cercanías)

Jump to last reply

If you cannot find schedules for some of your short distance trips in Spain try looking at the "Cercanías" schedule. The commuter train tickets can be bought at self serve kiosks or at windows in the stations. They usually run several times an hour.

Know that your destination MAY NOT BE POSTED on the track information on the screen at the station if it is NOT the final destination of THAT particular train. You must ask what the final destination is for your commuter train or you may be totally confused as to which track to proceed to when you don't see "your " city listed. There should be staff in the station roaming around to help you if you have not bought the ticket at a window.

For example, in Valencia, to go to Xativa, the majority of the trains continue on to MOIXENT. I have written and complained about the signage for years. XATIVA is the biggest city on the line. Why don´t they say "MOIXENT via XATIVA"?

So, don´t despair, but keep these tips in mind. Always ask before getting on the train.. just to be sure, of course! You won´t be the only one re-confirming a destination!
