TRAM has renewed its collaboration agreement with the MACBA, MNAC, Museu Picasso de Barcelona, CCCB, Fundació Joan Miró and Fundació Antoni Tàpies for the fifth consecutive year to help publicise exhibitions at these museums and cultural centres using the tram.

The agreement establishes the collaboration between TRAM and the 6 museums that make up the Articket group to facilitate the dissemination of the exhibitions planned and to promote awareness of the cultural exhibitions on offer at the city's museums. Therefore, TRAM is committed to encouraging attendance at the museums with raffles and ticket packs and season tickets promotions throughout 2022 and 2023, via its corporate channels.

As a result, tram riders will get double exposure to Barcelona cultural events: on the TRAM social media and on signs throughout the tram system from each of the museums.

In addition, the agreement also includes other considerations, such as promoting art and culture through TRAM's own channels and using spaces to organise activities and events.

Calendar of communication actions on the TRAM

TRAM's calendar of communication campaigns will begin in July with a Trambaix tram featuring the vinyl image of the "Turner. Light is Colour" exhibition at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC). The schedule for the other actions is:

  • Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya: Active TRAM action from 1 July to 31 August 2022.
  • CCCB: Active TRAM action from 1 September to 31 October 2022.

  • Fundació Joan Miró: Active TRAM action from 1 March to 30 April 2023.

This pass includes the CCCB, Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Fundació Miró, MACBA, MNAC and Museu Picasso.

For the Cruïlla festival, service will be reinforced on Trambesòs line T4 from Friday 8 July at 5:00 am through Sunday 10 July at 12 midnight. This way, TRAM is helping facilitate the mobility of people attending this music festival held in the Forum area of Barcelona.

From Friday 8 July at 5:00 am, service on line T4 will run non-stop through to Sunday 10 July at midnight. The timetable for T4, which runs from Sant Adrià to Ciutadella l Vila Olímpica, will be the same as usual up to midnight. After this time, trams will pass once every 20 minutes.

The additional service is possible thanks to a collaboration agreement with the organisers of this cultural event. Thanks to this agreement, for three days, there will be trams more often and double units at peak times when headliners start and finish their concerts.

The Metropolitan Transport Authority (ATM) and TRAM will be taking part in the 2022 Barcelona Bicycle Festival this Sunday 19 June on
Passeig de Lluís Companys.

The TRAM booth, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, will offer fun, educational activities on
safe mobility and respectful co-existence among sustainable modes of urban
transport, such as the tram and bicycles. Specifically, the TRAM and ATM space will
give visitors the chance to discover details of tram operations in a Memory game and
a Tangram, and get TRAM cut-outs and a cycle clip.

ATM will also contribute three T-usual passes to the draw organised by the Bicycle
Festival, which anyone who comes to the festival can enter.

The day will kick off with a popular bicycle ride leaving from the corner of Carrer
Aragó and Carrer Roger de Flor at 10:00 am. So, service will be interrupted on
Trambesòs line T4 between Glòries and Ciutadella l Vila Olímpica from 10:00 am to
2:00 pm.

TRAM reminds riders that these times are approximate and will depend on any
instructions from the organisers and the Guàrdia Urbana.

As part of the Primavera Sound festival, the Trambesòs line T4 will run non-stop during the festival. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the first and second weekend the service will run non-stop. As a result, TRAM provides sustainable mobility for those attending this important music festival, which is mainly held in the Forum area.

The increase in the service comes as a result of a collaboration agreement, renewed for the fifth year with the organisers of the cultural event. Thanks to this agreement, there will be trams running without interruption for two weekends on the T4 line that runs from Estació de Sant Adrià to Ciutadella | Villa Olímpica.

The timetables for this line will be as usual and from midnight on Thursday night and 2 am on Friday and Saturday, running every 20 minutes. At specific times, such as at the end of the headline concerts, there will be double trams running to facilitate the departure of music festival-goers.

Service will be suspended on line T4 of the Trambesòs network and lines T1, T2 and T3 of the Trambaix network this Sunday 29 May for the 8th annual Diagonal DiR – Guàrdia Urbana 10K race.

Service will be stopped on all Trambaix lines between Francesc Macià and Ernest Lluch from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and on line T4 of the Trambesòs network between Glòries and Ciutadella | Vila Olímpica from 8:15 am to 10:00 am. From 9:00 am, service should return to normal on the Trambaix network and from 10:00 am, on the Trambesòs network.

Remember, these times are approximate and will depend on the progress of the race and race management.
The rest of the lines on the Trambesòs network will continue to run on their normal schedule.

TRAM is kicking off the fifth edition of Art al TRAM and the third to bring urban art to the underground walls of the tram, with cultural platform Rebobinart. The stop getting renovated this year is Sant Martí de Provençals, on lines T5 and T6 of the Trambesòs network.

Catalan artist Elisa Capdevila has been chosen to paint the mural on the two walls inside the tram stop. With her realistic style, she will paint the more than 800 m2 of wall with stories sent in by tram users. Capdevila’s piece will be a tribute to public transport users, lives in the metropolitan city and the genuine daily activities of each passenger.

The artist, born in El Papiol and living in Barcelona, has shown great mastery of various techniques, ranging from painting on canvas to huge urban murals. She has used the latter technique in various cities in Catalonia and abroad, in Portugal, France, Italy and India, among others.

Tram riders can send in their stories as an audio or text message on WhatsApp to 682 93 38 95, by email to tram@tram.cat or by private message on official TRAM social media profiles.
