Palma’s Metro network is the smallest in Spain. Although it offers limited opportunities for getting around Palma city, it is a good option for reaching Palma’s northern districts. The Metro is operated by Serveis Ferroviaris de Mallorca (SFM) and first opened on 25th April 2007.
The Metro line does not currently go to the airport and there is no Metro connection from Palma Airport to Palma city. To get to the Metro station from the airport, you will need to take a bus or a taxi.
The closest metro station to Palma Airport is the Intermodal Station at Placa d’Espanya in Palma city. This is Palma’s main station – trains, buses and coaches also depart from here.
When at Placa d’Espanya, you will need to go down the set of stairs at Palma Intermodal Station. This is an underground station and the start of the Metro.
The EMT airport bus A1 goes directly from Palma Airport to the train station at Plaça d’Espanya. The bus journey will take around half an hour and costs € 5 for a single ticket. A taxi journey from Palma Airport to the train station will take around 15 minutes.
The Palma Metro has two lines, M1 and M2. The starting point, the Intermodal Station, is close to the city centre. The M1 goes to the university (Universidad de las Islas Baleares – UIB). Metro line M2 goes to Marratxí. There are plans to extend the M1 line by 1.5 km to Parc Bit, a science and technology park located on the outskirts of Palma.

M2 Metro trains from Marratxí station to Intermodal station operate between 6:20 am to 9:20 pm.
The M2 runs every 20 minutes during the day from Monday to Friday with a journey time of 14 minutes. As the M2 follows the rail line, it is also possible to take one of the following trains: T1 to Inca, T2 to Sa Pobla, or T3 to Manacor, which run between the hours of 5.46 am and 10.20 pm. While some of the trains stop at all the Metro stations, some others run straight through to Marratxí. Passengers wishing to disembark at any other Metro station will therefore need to double-check prior to boarding the train. Trains that do not stop are marked “sense aturades / sin paradas” on the timetable.
The M2 does not run on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays. However, on those days, passengers can use the trains, all of which stop at every Metro station between Intermodal Station and Marratxí.
For the current M2 timetable, please see the Metro website.
Tickets can be purchased at the station either at the ticket office at the Intermodal Station or at the ticket machines at any station. For ticket prices, please see the Metro website.
