Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is calling on all fans to travel to the circuit in the most sustainable way. There are several comfortable options to get to the Circuit by train, with special programming offered by Renfe for the weekend, or by bus, with the special service offered by Sagalés from the Barcelona city centre.
Renfe to offer 22,000 additional seats
The special schedule set-up by Renfe for the weekend will offer a total of 22,000 additional seats including 16 special trains, 3 on Saturday and 13 on Sunday, of line R2 Cercanías de Catalunya (Castelldefels-Granollers Centre).
In order to make mobility easier for fans, Renfe will be increasing the usual train offer on Sunday, 11 June, between 07:30 and 12:00 to get to the Circuit and from 15:20h to return from Montmeló. The special schedule provides for an average frequency of 15 minutes in each direction on the Montmeló – Barcelona route during the expected rush hours.
The increase of services planned for the Gran Premi de Catalunya will complete the usual offer of the Commuter Trains (Cercanías de Catalunya) in Montmeló on weekends, which consists of 74 daily trains, 37 in each direction, making-up a total of 81,400 seats per day.
Moreover, RENFE has programmed the ticket vending machines so that the first ticket to appear on the screen will be the return ticket to Montmeló.
Last year, more than 30,000 people used the Cercanías commuter trains to attend the event on the three days.
