Seville Trains: Cercanías

The Cercanías trains are the local commuter trains that serve major cities. These suburban Seville trains cross the city center, and run frequently to small towns in the outskirts.

The Seville Cercanías comprises 5 railway lines and are managed by Renfe Operadora. It’s a public company in charge of managing all the passenger train routes throughout Spain.

Renfe currently operates 254 km (158 mi) of railway infrastructure and 35 stations (1 of them linked to the Metro) in the Seville region (Provincia).

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 (for iPhone or Android) to access a complete schedule of all Cercanías trains.

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


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 ten trips.

Unfortunately, you can use the same transport tickets as you would for Metro and buses.

Do not throw out your Cercanías train ticket and receipt until you are well away from your destination train station. On arriving at your destination you will 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.
