The Seville Cercanías trains are the local commuter trains that serve the city, and run frequently to small towns in the outskirts. Seville has a good train connection with Renfe suburban network.

Unless you plan to visit one or some of the surrounding villages (e.g. the beautiful Utrera), you won’t need to use the Cercanías trains.

However, if you plan to take the train to travel around Spain, you should definitely have a look at my complete guide on train travel from Seville.

Unfortunately, there’s no Cercanías train line linking the Seville airport with the city center.

In case you need it, here’s everything you need to know when arriving to Seville airport and how to get there from the city center.

The Seville Cercanías trains operating times and trips

Cercanías trains start running every day between 5:00 and 6:00 and stop at around midnight.

Trains normally run every 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the line. At weekends and in the evening they are less frequent, and you may have to wait up to 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the time.

Download the Renfe Cercanías app (iOS or Android) to access a complete schedule of all Cercanías trains.

Alternatively, you can also check the Cercanías schedules at Renfe’s website.

The Seville Cercanías trains tickets and fares

The price of the Cercanías train tickets varies according to the distance covered. You can buy, for example, a single ticket or a Bonotren with 10 trips.

Unfortunately, you cannot use the same transport tickets as you would for Metro and buses.

Don’t throw out your Cercanías train ticket and receipt until you’re well away from your destination train station. On arriving at your destination you’ll need your ticket again in order to exit the train platform area.

If you arrive to Seville by AVE, you can use your Combinado Cercanías ticket.

You can also take the Cercanías within the city.

  • Santa Justa. Seville’s main station is the most important Cercanías hub. All the lines leave from or go through it. You can also catch high-speed AVE and Media distancia trains.
  • San Bernardo. It the second big station of the city and all Cercanías lines (except C-2 and C-3) stop here. It’s also a Metro station (line 1) and many Tussam buses stop here.
