Hi. I'm not sure which bus I would be able to catch due to the fact that my flight arrives at midnight at girona airport. In that case, is there any problem if I won't book a ticket but buy one there? Is there any case I will not find a seat? My hotel in Barcelona is on the edge of the streets Gran via de les corts catalanes - carrer de Roger de Llúria. How can I get there? Thank you!

Hello Niki,

You should consult the schedule of the buses above on this page. See the day of the week (Monday, Tuesday...) you are arriving to know the possibilities. The buses are coordinated with the Ryanair flight so they wait. You can buy tickets at the airport but it is better to buy in advance to have a reserved seat. To get Roger de Lluria / Gran Via, take the L1 metro line (the Arc de Triomf metro station is very close to the Bus station) and go to Catalunya station. From there you can walk.

Have a nice stay in Barcelona,

Hello. If our flight lands at Girona airport at 11.50, should I get the Barcelona bus at 12.15 or 1.30?

Also, do you need to pre-book?

Hello Mark,

It is possible to buy the tickets at the airport but it is recommended to buy them in advance to get a place. The buses are coordinated with Ryanair flights, so should be able to take the bus at 12:15h.

We hope this information is useful for you,

Hello. On 13th April my daughter and I fly with Ryanair to Girona airport and arrive at 23:00. As our hotel is in Royal Marine Gardens Casterdefels I think we need to travel to Barcelona first. I am concerned that there will not be any public transport at this time and when my daughter booked the trip she did not realise the distance from the airport to the hotel. Could you please offer some advice. Many thanks. Lucy

Hello Lucy,

You should take two night buses after arriving at Barcelona Estació del Nord from Girona airport. If you don't have the possibility to change neither your flight nor your hotel, reply to his comment and we will explain how.

Hi there, I really need an advice please.

We are travelling to Barcelona with a 3y.o. daughter and have the return flight home on Monday 6,30 AM from Girona Airport. As we have tickets to FCB match which is the evening before (Sunday 20.00), we cannot leave Barcelona before midnight. Is there any other option than to take a taxi to get to Girona Airport at time? As I have seen in bus timetables, the latest bus leaves the BCN Nord station at 23.10 which we are unable to catch :(

Thank you.

Hello Dana,

In fact there is a bus departing Barcelona Estació del Nord at 5 am, but arrives in Girona airport at 6:15 am. There is no other possibility.

Can I ask you how to get from Diagonal Home (adress Avigunda Diagonal 578 Piso 4, Sarria-St.Gervasi, 08021 Barselona) to Girona airport? We will be 3 person. And our flight at 06:25 morning. by bus or other posibility. Thank you so much

WeBarcelona's picture

Hello Loreta,
The only possibility is the bus or a private transfer. You have to get the bus at Estació del Nord. From your accommodation, you can take the bus N3 in carrer Paris with Casanova (direction Rambla dels Països Catalans - Pl. Espanya) to the Monumental bus stop and you will be 5-10 minutes form the bus station.
Have a nice stay in Barcelona!

How to get to plaza catcatalunja and then to following adressCARRER DE CALABRIA, 199 1er - 1ra. LÉIXAMPLE - BARCELONA.
by bus or other posibility. Thank you so much

WeBarcelona's picture

Dear Irene,
The bus will take you to Barcelona Estació del Nord. From there you can take the metro, line L1 (Arc the triomf station, very close to the bus station). This line is direct to Plaça Catalunya. From there to get Calabria, 199 street take the samemetro line to Urgell station. Other option to be closer to Calabria 199 is to take the line L3 in Plaça Catalunya, change in Diagonal station to L5 line and go to Entença station, which is less than 5 minutes from your destination.
Have a nice stay in Barcelona!!
