  • TRAM moves to the rhythm of trap in new civic-mindedness campaign

    Today, TRAM is launching its new civic-mindedness campaign targeting younger riders, with a figure that is ever-present in their studies (Kant) and a style of music that can surely be found on their playlists (trap music).

    The video has drawn inspiration from the trend of juxtaposing classical elements with urban music. Interpreting Kant’s categorical imperative to the rhythm of trap music and with the audiovisual language of trap music videos refreshes the narrative. Plus, seeing classic figures behaving in a more alternative way, outside of their traditional framework, is sure to make young riders pay more attention.

    The video, which will be available on social media and Tramvia de Barcelona’s own channels, was produced jointly by Paradise Falls and Christian Flores.

  • TRAM service affected by Zurich Marató Barcelona

    Tramvia de Barcelona is modifying service on line T4 of the Trambesòs network this Sunday 10 March for the Zurich Marató Barcelona.

    Between 8:30 am and 1:45 pm, there will be no service at all on line T4. From 1:45, service should be running to the Glòries stop, and from 2:30 pm, service will be available to Ciutadella | Vila Olímpica, meaning the whole line will be operating as usual.

    During the marathon, the shuttle bus covering the route of lines T5 and T6 between Can Jaumandreu and Glòries due to the works on the tunnels under Plaça de les Glòries will run as usual.

    Remember, these times are approximate and will depend on the progress of the Zurich Marató Barcelona and race management.

  • Service on TRAM line T4 affected by Barcelona Half Marathon

    Tramvia de Barcelona will modify service on Trambesòs line T4 this Sunday 10 February for the Barcelona Half Marathon, as the route runs along Avinguda Meridiana and Avinguda Diagonal.

    From 7:45 to 11:50 am, there will be no service on line T4. From 11:50 am to 12:20 pm, trams should be serving stops between Estació de Sant Adrià and Glòries, and from 12:20 pm, service should resume between Glòries and Ciutadella | Vila Olímpica, once the organisers have brought the race to a close.

    TRAM reminds riders that these times are approximate and will depend on the progress and organisation of the Barcelona Half Marathon.

    Additionally, service remains cut on lines T5 and T6 between the Glòries and Can Jaumandreu stops due to works on the tunnels under Plaça de les Glòries. The alternate shuttle bus route will also be affected by the Half Marathon, travelling between Glòries and Can Jaumandreu along Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes and from Can Jaumandreu to Glòries around Plaça de les Glòries on Carrer Independència, Carrer Aragó and Carrer Castillejos.

    The other lines in the tram network, Trambaix T1, T2 and T3, will run on their normal schedule.

  • TRAM service cut between Glòries and Can Jaumandreu stations due to works on the tunnels at Plaça de les Glòries

    Works in the tunnels at Plaça de les Glòries are affecting TRAM service in this area of the city. So, on 27 January, when the Can Jaumandreu stop will be re-configured to act as a provisional terminal station, tram service will be cut between Glòries and Sant Martí de Provençals. And, from 28 January through the end of April, service will be cut between Glòries and Can Jaumandreu.

    In order to minimise the effect on riders, the Barcelona City Council, with the Metropolitan Transport Authority (ATM) and TRAM, have come up with an Alternative Transport Plan to get users to their destination as quickly and easily as possible. The plan includes a shuttle bus covering the route of the lines affected.

    Impact on tram network

    The TRAM service cut between the Glòries (Meridiana-sud) and Can Jaumandreu (Gran Via -Rambla del Poblenou) stations will affect traffic in both directions on TRAM lines T5 and T6. Line T4, which also serves the Glòries stop, won’t be affected and will continue serving its normal route between Ciutadella|Vila Olímpica and Estació de Sant Adrià.

    So, TRAM lines T5 and T6 will not serve the Glòries and La Farinera stops and Can Jaumandreu will become the terminal station for trams to change directions instead of continuing on to Glòries. On business days, this will affect roughly 4,900 tram riders.

    Alternative Transport Plan

    The route and stops for the shuttle are:
    From Glòries to La Farinera

    • Leaving the Glòries station (intersection Meridiana-Encants in the bus lane at Plaça de les Glòries)
    • Bus lane at Plaça de les Glòries to intersection with Av. Diagonal
    • Along the tram rail line
    • Stop at the platform going towards Besòs at the La Farinera TRAM stop

    From La Farinera to Can Jaumandreu

    • Leaving the La Farinera station
    • Side lane of Gran Via to Rambla del Poblenou
    • Stop at the Can Jaumandreu station in the area with two lanes in the side lane at the Gran Via/Rambla del Poblenou intersection

    From Can Jaumandreu to Glòries

    • Leaving the stop at Rambla del Poblenou
    • Merging into the side lane of the C-31/Gran Via to turn on Carrer Bilbao
    • Carrer Bilbao to Carrer Tànger
    • Carrer Tànger to Meridiana
    • Turn on Meridiana and continuing until the area closed to traffic, stopping between the Glòries TRAM and Metro stations

    Users must punch their tickets on the shuttle, just as if they were taking the tram. The ticket machines at tram stops without service will continue working. The shuttle will run the same hours as the tram service.

    So, users travelling in this area who are affected by the service cuts have the following options:

    • TRAM T4 for journeys between Glòries and the stations on T6 in Sant Adrià de Besòs.
    • Bus H12 and Metro L2 for journeys between Glòries and the Tram stations on Gran Via and the T5 stations in Sant Adrià de Besòs and Badalona.
    • Special shuttle between Glòries, La Farinera and Can Jaumandreu stations.

    On 27 January, the Can Jaumandreu stop will be set up as a terminal station with only one working platform. This means that service will be cut all day on Sunday from Sant Martí de Provençals to Glòries to adapt this station. From 28 January to the end of April, there will be no service between Glòries and Can Jaumandreu.

    Since TRAM was launched in 2004, more than 334,768,810 passengers have ridden the tram in Barcelona. The Trambaix network, with three lines (T1, T2 and T3) and 29 stops, has been used by 227 million riders since it began operating. The Trambesòs network, which also has three lines (T4, T5 and T6) and 27 stops, has been used by over 107 million passengers.

    The Trambaix network began service on 3 April 2004 and the Trambesòs network on 8 May that same year. The number of trips taken on Tramvia de Barcelona has grown steadily since it went into operation, with the only exceptions being 2010 and 2012.
