Any visitor to the old part of Sevilla will no doubt notice the sleek silver trams that run the length of Avenida Constitucion past the cathedral terminating in Plaza Nueva. In the other direction the tram terminates at the San Bernardo railway station.
It’s tempting to ride the tram just for the experience, but unless you live in Sevilla you’ll find the route quite limiting. Plans are afoot to extend the service over the Guadalquivir River and into Triana but as at November 2011 this hasn’t happened.
Tickets for the tram costs 1.30€ for a one way trip, and if you’re staying in the city for more than a day it’s better to buy a bonobus ticket (3.75€ for a day) which lets you travel by tram and bus simply by swiping your card.
Future plans for the tram involve extending the line to Santa Justa AVE station, and through the main shopping precinct to Santa Catalina.
Current stops are Plaza Nueva, Avenida Constitucion, Puerta de Jerez (university), Prado de San Sebastian (bus station), and San Bernardo.
