Q: I wish to travel from Estacio de França to Sants Estacio with a wheelchair. Can I use the Metro or would it be better to use the train?
A: The best way to travel from Estacio de França to Sants Estacio with a wheelchair is to catch a train that leaves from Estacio de França and goes to Sants Estacio. It is quicker and easier. Also, unfortunately there is no adapted metro access at the metro stations near the Estacio de França. The nearest metro stop to França station is Barceloneta which is also 200 meters away. At the present time, Barcelona is improving a lot of metro stations to offer an adapted service for the disabled traveller.
