One of the transport systems that TMB operates in Barcelona is the funicular railway.
The Montjuïc Funicular is public transport comprising a cable car that connects the city of Barcelona with the mountain of Montjuïc, as well as with the facilities of the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium which is located on this site.
The system includes two stations: the one closest to the city is integrated into the Barcelona metro station of Paral·lel, at an altitude of four metres above sea level, where it connects to lines L2 and L3.
The second station is located on Avenida del Estadio in Montjuïc Park, at an altitude of eighty metres above sea level. This station provides access to the Montjuïc cable car, which runs to the castle.
The average gradient of the route is 10.1%, with a maximum gradient of 18%. The majority of the route is covered, with the exception of the last few metres, which are in the open air. Both stations are adapted for people with reduced mobility. The funicular is capable of carrying approximately 8,000 passengers per hour in each direction.
The funicular is part of the integrated fare system and the ticket costs the same as a metro or bus journey.
