Tickets and passes for Valencia's metro

Here we have gathered all the metro pass options that would be most useful for a visitor in Valencia. Of course, there are other passes that haven’t been included, as they are of little use to tourists, like the TuiN, a monthly Metrovalencia-exclusive pass (thus only valid for tram and metro services).

In our opinion, the most useful transportation pass system in Valencia is the SUMA. Any pass of this kind is valid across metro, trams, EMT buses, and short-distance trains (Cercanias Renfe).

Where to buy tickets for public transport in Valencia
You can get various types of transport passes at tobacco shops, automated machines (at a metro station), kiosks, or customer service offices.

Single tickets

There are no single combination (SUMA) tickets. This means that if you only want to get a single metro ticket, you will need to get it directly at a metro station, and it will only be valid for 90 minutes (or 110 minutes, if covering two zones) starting from the moment you validate it. For this reason, we recommend you get a SUMA combination pass.

Map of the public transport zones in Valencia
Valencia’s transport zones A, AB, B, and C. The city centre and the most relevant areas for tourists are all well within Zone A or AB at most.

A single metro or tram ticket can be purchased directly at a metro station, either from an automated machine or from an attendant at a stand. All automated machines will have a selection of languages to choose from, including English. Before using a machine, make sure that you can use your preferred payment method, as some machines take only cards or only cash. Prices vary depending on the number of zones in which you are travelling. You can see a breakdown in the following table.

Zones
Price
Zones One zone Two zones Three zones
Price €1.50 €2.80 €4.80

Keep in mind that the price of tickets or passes does not include the cost of the physical card. These cards can be purchased in cardboard (€1.00) or hard plastic (€2.00). You can load up to four single tickets at a time on these cards, so if you are travelling with someone else, you don’t have to buy two separate ones. They are also re-usable, meaning they can be reloaded with new passes or tickets, so always keep your card to avoid paying extra.

Almost all metro and tram tickets (including single tickets) can be loaded on cardboard Móbilis cards like these.

Suma 10

The SUMA 10, is a 10-journey pass that allows for one transfer between different lines or transportation methods. This pass is probably your best option if you are travelling with someone else, as it can be loaded with up to 30 journeys at a time and it is not personal, meaning that it can be used by up to 15 people. Just remember to tap it as many times as there are people with you. You should also tap any time you transfer from one transportation method to the other or from one bus to another.

Buying Suma 10 ticket for Metro Valencia
You can get a SUMA 10 ticket from an automated machine at any metro station in Valencia.

The SUMA 10 is available in various area coverage options (one, two, or three zones). However, we do not recommend you get a multiple-zone SUMA 10. As you will likely be moving primarily in the city (and not the suburbs), we recommend you only get the one-zone SUMA 10 for Zone A. Whenever you need the metro to go somewhere outside Zone A, (to go to the Airport, for instance), you can just buy a single ticket that covers all areas you need. Of course, prices vary depending on the number of zones covered by the card. You can see a breakdown in the following table.

Zones
Details
Price
Zones One zone Two zones Three zones
Details The pass can either be for Zone A or Zone B. The pass can either cover zones A,B or B,C. Covers zones A, B, and C (including the airport). Not recommended as there are cheaper alternatives.
Price €8.00 €12.00 €20.00

SUMA T and T+ passes

SUMA T and T+ are unlimited travel passes for one person, valid for EMT and MetroBus buses, metro, trams, and Renfe Cercanias (short distance trains). They are valid in zones A-B (for T passes) or zones A-B-C (for T+ passes). For each type, there are three duration options.

T1 and T1+ are valid for one day, T2 and T2+ for two days, and T3 and T3+ for three days. As long as you tap your card within the limit hours, you can finish your journey after the card has expired. Remember that out of the two, only T+ passes include Zone C, meaning they are valid for transportation between the airport and the city. Here too, prices vary depending on the number of zones covered by the pass. You can see a breakdown in the following table.

Pass Type
Validity
Price
Pass Type T1 / T1+ T2 / T2+ T3 / T3+
Validity 24 hours 48 hours 72 hours
Price €4.00 / €8.00 €6.70 / €10.00 €9.70 / €12.00

Valencia’s transport zones A, AB, B, and C. As you can see, the city centre and the most relevant areas for tourists are all well within Zone A or Zone AB at most.

You can buy SUMA T in any metro station, but you can only get SUMA T+ passes in some metro stations, like at the Airport. Both passes are also available at tobacco shops, Renfe Cercanias, or authorised kiosks. Here you can check out all available selling points . You can also reload your card on the app RecargaSUMA (for Android) , previously known as RecargaMobilis. Remember you can only use the app if you have a Spanish phone number.

Valencia Tourist Card

Another great option is the Valencia Tourist Card (VTC). This is a discount card valid for one, two, or three days. On top of discounts and free entries to museums, monuments, tourist services and restaurants, the card includes free public transportation. This covers EMT buses (Zone A), as well as metro and trams (zones A-B-C). Along with the card, you will receive a free map of the city with a discount guide.
