Getting around in the city
Cordoba is a city you can explore on foot –the old town and the main monuments and places of interest are very close to each other. In any case, there is also a public transport service that covers the whole city and links with the suburbs.
A good option to get around Cordoba are the city buses. These run from 6 am to midnight, although timetables vary according to the route. There is also a fnight bus service around the city on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 pm to 5 am.
Another option is to use taxis: these are available all day and night, and are white with the city crest and their licence number on the side. You can hail them in the street when the green light is on. Otherwise they can be found at taxi ranks or you can order them by telephone using the radio taxi service. Tariffs are on display inside the taxis and include charges for flag-down, kilometres travelled and other special extras such as night service, public holidays, and train or airport services.
How much does transport cost?
One-way tickets for the bus cost €1.20 and can be purchased from the driver. You can buy a Bonobús pass at tobacconists for €6.90 which is valid for 10 journeys including changes between lines.
Which is the best option?
If you want to make various journeys or travel in a group, the best is the 10-journey Bonobús pass. Each trip includes a transfer within the permitted time period (one hour). The right to transfer is personal and non-transferable.
Other ways of getting around
You can also ride in a horse and carriage through the old town: you'll find carriages next to the Great Mosque, Cordoba Cathedral and near the Alcázar of the Christian Monarchs. One hour costs approximately €45. There are also daily buses which run to the Medina Azahara site, with a return ticket costing €7,13 for adults (you can purchase tickets online, by telephone or at tourist information points).
