Step 1: From the Barcelona airport to downtown Barcelona

Click here for general information about transportation from and to the airport. Our recommended options are the following:
Aerobus: Blue buses leave from outside the terminal buildings (T1 and T2) and go downtown Barcelona (Plaça Catalunya, in front of a department store called El Corte Inglés). Ride time will depend on the time of the day but, traffic permitting it is about a 30-45 minutes ride (allow extra time when taking it during rush-hours: 7 to 9 am and 5 to 7 pm).
If arriving in Terminal T1. Click here for more information
If arriving in Terminal T2. Click here for more information
Taxi: If you arrive after hours or carrying heavy luggage, you can take a taxi. Remember to ask for a receipt in order to have a proof of your payment. From the airport to Plaça Catalunya it may take around 20-30 minutes and cost around 20 €, depending on traffic. From the airport to the CRM it may take around 35-45 minutes and cost around 45 €.
Step 2: From downtown Barcelona to the CRM (Bellaterra, Cerdanyola)
From Plaça Catalunya there are two train services to Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona:
 Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC): This is our recommended choice. Check the timetable and other details by clicking here. You will need to take the "Vallès" line. The downtown station in Barcelona is "Plaça Catalunya". The closest station to the CRM is "Universitat Autònoma", and the closest station to Vila Universitària and Hotel Campus is "Bellaterra". If your lodging is arranged in Sant Cugat and you are going there straight away, stop at "Sant Cugat" train station. From the "Bellaterra" train station there is a 5-10 minute walk until the CRM.
 RENFE: Check the timetable and other details by clicking here. There is no English version of this RENFE website. To check your timetable, enter "Aeroport" at the "Origen" selector and "Cerdanyola-Universitat" at the "Destino" selector. There is a free bus service that takes you from this train station to Campus. Ask the bus driver for the nearest stop to "Facultat de Ciències".
Note that the two different train lines leave from and arrive to entirely separate stations underneath Plaça Catalunya or at the UAB Campus. Hence, if you arrive from the airport by the RENFE train and wish to go on to the CRM by FGC, then you will need to leave the station, cross the square towards La Rambla, and look for  signs. If you wish to take a RENFE train to the UAB, then you will not even need to change platforms, but you will be further off from the CRM at your arrival in the UAB campus. One ticket costs 2.05 € (two-zone ticket), although you can buy a 10-journey two-zone ticket, called T10, for 15.40 €, if you plan to make several trips to Barcelona. Please check the carrier for updated information on prices.
There is also a night bus from Plaça Catalunya to Bellaterra (Vila Universitària), from 1:00 to 4:00. Click here to see a timetable.
The Girona airport is 103 km (64.2 miles) North East of Barcelona or at about 1 hour 20 minutes by train from downtown Barcelona. There is no public transportation connecting the Girona airport to Bellaterra (where the CRM is located). The connection has to be made through the city of Barcelona. Click here for information on how to reach downtown Barcelona. If you take the bus to Barcelona, it will leave you near the "Arc de Triomf" metro station. From there, take Line 1 to "Plaça Catalunya" and follow step 2 above.
If you arrive in Barcelona by train, you will probably arrive at "Sants" station. From Sants, you can take a local train or a metro to Plaça Catalunya, and continue as above (step 2).
The UAB Campus is located near the A7 (E15) motorway. Coming from the North, take the A7 (E15) motorway direction Tarragona. After Km 147, switch to E9 (also B30) at the point signposted "Universitat Autònoma", but then stay on the B30, ignoring the next three exits to Sabadell. Finally, take the exit marked "Universitat Autònoma".
Coming from the South, take the motorway A7 (E15) direction Girona. Just after Km 152, after "Àrea del Vallès", switch to the C58 (Barcelona, Sabadell, Manresa). After less than 1 Km, take exit 21 and follow the red signs "Universitat Autònoma". Turning left over the motorway will take you to Access 1.
