The Barcelona Metro, part of the public transportation system of Barcelona, Spain is an extensive network
of electrified railways that run underground in central Barcelona and on
the surface to the city's suburbs.
The network consists of ten lines managed by 2 different operators: Transports
Metropolitans de Barcelona
(TMB), which manages the major underground lines; and Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya
(FGC - Catalan Government Railways) manages three integrated commuter lines
running out into the
extended metropolitan area. TMB operates the lines L1 to L5, FCG L6-L8
and the tram operates T1-T4.

Barcelona Airport and Commuter Train
The Terminal 2 of Barcelona Airport, which locates 10kms southwest of Barcelona,
has its own Renfe
commuter train station of the line 2( Nord ). It serves the section between
Macanet-Massanes and the
Aeroport, picking up many air passengers at Barcelona Sants station. A new railway stationin the
Barcelona airport is under construction. When completed, it would connect
the airport to the AVE
network, and Line 9 of the Barcelona Metro. However, the numbers of passengers
air shuttle had been reduced after 2007. This appears to be the side effect
of the high-speed train has
started to link via railroad the two major cities in Spain.
Passengers are waiting for a commuter train ( Line 2, Nord ) to the Barcelona
airport. It stops at Barcelona Sants station.
If you are coming from Granollers Centre or Estacio de Franca, you have
to change a train at Barcelona Sants.
