Map and helpful tools
While you are moving around a new city, it can be hard to know where exactly the nearest station is, or what the best route to go anywhere is. You can make your life easier by always having a map of the Metrovalencia network with you, as well as using a few tools.
This way, you can reload your tickets on the go, consult timetables and check the nearest station to you. Here we have gathered the most popular and useful tools, along with the official map of the network.
Valencia metro map
There are maps available at every station, but it’s also useful to have one on your smartphone that you can use during your trip.
Here you can download the official map for the Valencia metro network (PDF - 1 MB), which illustrates zones, metro, and tram lines, with all relative stops.
Helpful tools to travel by metro in Valencia
There are various useful tools for planning journeys and paying for metro journeys in Valencia. To use them during your stay, you’ll need a smartphone with an internet connection.
The purpose of this app is to provide information about public transport routes in Valencia and other cities around the world.
When it comes to buses and trams, the app can provide real-time information (based on GPS data) on vehicle arrivals at any stop. For the metro, it provides estimated arrival times of the next trains.
Moovit is ideal for planning trips using any type of public transportation. You can use the app directly in your web browser without having to download it. However, it’s recommended that you install it anyway for a significantly better user experience.
This popular tool provides detailed information on route planning and sights. Google Maps is very user-friendly and provides real-time updates on all public transport methods (including buses).
Just like Moovit, Google Maps suggests several routes to reach your destination. Also, it provides information about the arrival time of vehicles through the “Schedule Explorer” option.
Google Maps is installed by default on most devices running on Android. If you don’t have the app yet, you can download it for free (also available for iOS) or use the web version.
The Recarga SUMA app allows users to check how many rides they have left on their SUMA cards, as well as top them up. It works with any SUMA pass. The app replaces the previous app, RecargaMobilis.
Unfortunately, to use it you need to have a Spanish phone number on your device. In our experience, it also doesn’t work on every phone, so your ability to use it depends on the compatibility of your device.
The Metrovalencia app allows you to check the updated info about metro schedules, routes, updates, and run time.
You cannot recharge any SUMA passes or get single metro tickets on this app. You can only recharge metro-exclusive services, like TuiN, a monthly metro pass that is not of much use to tourists.
There are other convenient tools for planning trips, buying or recharging tickets online, by any means of public transport available in Valencia. You can see the details of all available options in our article:
