This summer, Barcelona's rail transport will be carrying out improvement work at various points, leading to some disruptions in services. Public transport services to the Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport have been resumed and the timetables of most operators have been modified.
Since Friday 24 July, coinciding with the resumption of Terminal T2 services, all normal public transport services to Josep Tarradellas Barcelona – El Prat airport have been available.
Reduced public transport services on Friday and Saturday nights
Also since Friday 24 July, and in accordance with the health regulations for dealing with Covid-19 spikes in the Metropolitan Area, the metro, FGC train and TRAM services will end at midnight every Friday and Saturday, as well as every evening prior to a public holiday.
Furthermore, the network of night buses will offer 50% of normal services at the weekend, both for the Metropolitan NITBUS service, run by AMB, and the intercity network, run by the Generalitat de Catalunya.
These limited evening services on Fridays, Saturdays and the eves of public holidays are expected to be maintained throughout August and until the re-establishment of night-time leisure activities justifies a change.
