Getting around in the capital of Andalucia is very simple, buses and the metro are the cheapest means and work perfectly. In particular the coaches operate from 6 in the morning to 24, but during the night it is possible to take advantage of the night buses that depart from Plaza Nueva or da Prado de San Sebastian.
In the various tourist offices it is possible to take, for free, all timetables with routes and bus lines, in this way it will be really easy to move around the city. The cost of the ticket is 1 €, but it is possible to make a subscription of 10 races at the price of € 3,90. Alternatively, you can use Google Maps to know the fastest movements and the lines to use.
The metro is another valid solution, the ticket price is about € 1,50 / € 1,80, but it is possible to buy a bonometer and lower the cost to € 1,17 per way. The subway runs through the whole city, is very convenient and leaves you in the center. The price varies according to the tramline (the metro is divided into three parts, if you only use the center the cost will be € 1,50).
Alternatively, you can take advantage of the tram that goes by San Bernardo Fino to Plaza Nueva, crossing avenue of the Costitucion (where the Cathedral of Seville is located). For Tram, Metro and Bus it is possible to use a bonometer, the same as the metro so to speak.

The Seville metro has only 1 metro line which is good because it will be difficult to go wrong, you just have to take the direction you are interested in. Through the Seville metro line you can move to the center of the city, in the future there will be a second line that allows you to reach the Santa Justa train station but for now the closest stop is Nervion.
As previously mentioned, the Seville metro line is divided into three "tramways" ranging from:
- Section 0 from Expo City to Blas Infante
- Section 1 from Blas Infante to Pablo Olavide (University)
- Section 2 Plabo from Olavide Fino to Olivar de Quintos
The change from one stretch to the top involves an additional cost of a few cents. Here you can find the map with all the metro stops in Seville:
I have mentioned several times to the price of the Seville metro, this varies according to the jumps that you will give between the various trams of the line (if you pass for example from Ciudad expo to Plaza de Cuba you will have to count a jump).
If you do not make any "jump" you will pay the basic fare (about € 1,35 with a ticket or € 1,17 if you take a bonometer). If you make a jump you will have to pay an extra and the total will be € 1.60, if you make two an additional extra for a maximum of about € 1,80.
There is the option of getting a full-day metro ticket for € 4,50, which is useful if you make a lot of trips on the metro. Alternatively there is the bonometer, or 10 trips that will cost you about: 0,82 cents without jumps per trip, 1,17 for 1 jump, 1,37 for two jumps. You can use the bonometer in one year.
