Bus in Bilbao

Transport > Bus in Bilbao

Bilbobus is the name for metropolitan bus services in Bilbao.

The service is owned by the city council of Bilbao. Operations will be transferred to Veolia Transport, the company that won the contract in May 2008. The buses can be distinguished by their red colour and large white lettering, and there are 28 major lines serving the city, with eight smaller lines connecting the town centre with neighborhoods with narrow streets where normal buses can't drive. Plus eight night lines, called Gautxori.

Bilbobus has recently won a European Union prize for service excellence. It is part of a wider transport network operated by the Basque government, recent additions to which include the Metro Bilbao underground and the EuskoTran tram line. They join the Renfe, EuskoTren and FEVE train services and are heavily integrated by means of the Creditrans card to provide ease of movement in the city.

The company's branding takes the Basque language name for the city, Bilbo.
