Barcelona launches the new T-12 travel card

The Metropolitan Transport Authority of
Barcelona (ATM) has introduced the T-12
travel card, aimed at children from 4 to 12
years of age. This is a travel document valid
for one zone, that corresponds to the municipality
where the holder lives. It will enable
an unlimited number of free journeys on all
modes of transport forming part of the
integrated transport system (underground,
FGC, suburban trains, tram, and urban and
inter-urban buses) inside that zone. One fare
zone includes several municipalities.

It is a personalised ticket which must be
accompanied by the child’s identity document.
It will enable the 440,000 children living in
the Integrated Fare System area, to cover
their day-to-day journeys. It will be valid for
one calendar year and will cost €35. The
basic objective of the new T-12 travel card is
to encourage children’s mobility by means
of a cheap ticket which will contribute
towards fostering the everyday use of public
transport.

Until now transport has been free for
children up to 4, but older children did not
benefit from any specific reduction.
