1. Barcelona Airport transfer options to Sitges


There are a few means of transport to Sitges from Barcelona Airport:
1. Private car with a driver
2. The MonBus service
3. The RENFE train (includes a change of train at Barcelona Sants rail station).

Which one you take will depend on your flight details because the MonBus service only runs approximately every 30 minutes to 1 hour (depending on what time of day you are travelling). It will also depends on which Terminal at Barcelona Airport you are flying into. There are two terminals at Barcelona Airport - Terminal 1 (T1) and Terminal 2 (T2) (T2 has three separate sections T2A, T2B and T2C ).

The MonBus service to Sitges only departs from T1. Therefore, if you are arriving into T2, you will need to take the free shuttle bus to T1 to catch the Monbus coach to Sitges.

For more information see our page on the free airport shuttle bus service connecting T1 and T2.


Private transfer service from Barcelona Airport (BCN) to / or from Sitges

The private transfer service operates between Barcelona airport (both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2) and Sitges. We have provided a link below where you can reserve either of these services.

The MonBus service to Sitges - Leaving from outside T1 Barcelona airport

The MonBus service runs from Barcelona airport to the following stations and includes the popular destination of Sitges.

Barcelona City Centre (Ronda Universitat) > Barcelona Gran Via > Barcelona Airport T1 > Sitges >

Sitges >Barcelona Airport (T1) > Barcelona Gran Via > Barcelona City Centre (Ronda Universitat)

The stops are in order of direction but remember that the MonBus runs in both directions from the airport so make sure you get the bus that is going in the direction you want.


Our Insider Tip

From Site visitor Tom Levitan, UK about the MonBus Service.

A suggestion -- you might want to warn people that at least on Friday afternoon, the MonBus to Sitges from the airport can be standing room only. Two of us travelling at different times last Friday encountered this. It wasn't too bad, but it could surprise people.
