Taking the Metro in Palma

The metro station is at the main train station for Mallorca in Palma city at Placa d’Espanya in Palma. The station is called Palma Intermodal Station.

There isn’t a metro or train connection from Palma airport to Palma city.

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 Metro is operated by Serveis Ferroviaris de Mallorca (SFM) and first opened on 25th April 2007. It is therefore relatively new, runs regularly and is clean. It’s ideal if you want to go to some of the northern points of the city. In fairness though, Palma Metro is quite limited and is the smallest in Spain.

The Metro only has two lines, M1 and M2, although each line has several stops along the way. The starting point, the Intermodal Station, is close to the city center.

Line M1 has 9 stations and line M2 has 10. The Intermodal station and the next two stations are served by both M1 and M2 lines.

M1 Metro Line

Intermodal station to Universidad de las Islas Baleares (UIB) station

This line is 7.2 km long and has the following stops:

Intermodal
Jacint Verdaguer,
Son Costa – Son Fortesa
Son Fuster Vell

M1 Metro trains run from :
Intermodal station to UBI station
6:35 am to 9:35 pm

UBI station to Intermodal station
6:52 am to 9:52 pm

The M1 runs every 20 minutes from Monday to Friday and every 30 minutes on Saturday mornings, with no service Saturday afternoons and Sundays. In the summer months during July and August, the service may be less regular. The journey time from the Intermodal Station to UIB is 13 minutes.

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. The work is due to start in the summer of 2019.

M2 Metro Line

Intermodal station to Marratxi station

This line is 8.35km long and has the following stops:

Intermodal
Jacint Verdaguer
Son Costa – Son Fortesa
Son Fuster
Son Cladera-Vivero
Verge de Lluc
Pont d’Inca

Metro trains run from:
Intermodal station to Marratxí station
5.56 am to 9.00pm

Marratxí station to Intermodal station
6:20 am to 9:00 pm

The M2 runs roughly every 20 to 40 minutes 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 5.40 am and 10.15 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 time table.

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.

Tickets prices are € 1.45 (€ 0.75 discounted tickets) to go to any station on either line.
