The Barcelona bus network comprises 106 lines which, with more than 1,100 vehicles, cover a total distance of 839.21 km. The bus network is structured into diagonal, vertical and horizontal sections, together with a fourth block of numbered lines. This network serves Barcelona and 10 municipalities within the metropolitan area.
TMB's commitment to sustainability and improving air quality is reflected in the fact that it has the cleanest bus fleet in Europe. One of TMB's strategic objectives is to switch to green energy in its bus network, placing it at the forefront in this area.
Between 2021 and 2025 it will incorporate 508 renewable technology buses, of which 223 will be electric and 46 hydrogen-powered. In addition to the substantial investment it is making in electric bus charging infrastructure, TMB has driven forward the construction and commissioning of a hydrogen station open to the public.
TMB, as well as wanting to become a European benchmark in terms of mobility management, also wants to be a leader when it comes to social responsibility.
