Mallorca has an organised and efficient public transport system with train and metro service across much of the island. Whether you are on holiday and want to experience the countryside in a different way, or are needing to get across Palma and don’t want to hassle with parking or driving, there are many options to choose from. Palma is a great base from which to discover where the train and metro can take you.
You can catch a train from Palma all the way to Manacor or Sa Pobla, stopping at various villages, such as Santa Maria, Binissalem and Inca along the way. On most trains you can also take your bicycle with you. Please visit www.tib.org for timetables.
There is also a scenic old train which leaves from a separate station, just across the road from the main train station, which goes to Sóller and is a tourist attraction in its own right.
The train has been running since 1912 and operates six times daily from Palma, and five times daily from Sóller (four times going in each direction in winter).
Taking the train to Sóller is a great way of immersing yourself in Mallorca’s landscape. Find out why it’s one of the island’s most popular attractions. […] Train to Sóller
The Mallorca metro is operated by Serveis Ferroviaris de Mallorca (SFM), and the main station, located in the Plaza de España, in central Palma, is called the Intermodal Station. The metro system was opened in 2007, and is still quite new, servicing several regions in the greater Palma area.
There are two metro lines, M1, which has 9 station stops and M2 which has 10. Two important stops are the University (UIB), and Son Castelló and Gran Via Asima, which are two large commercial centres where parking and driving can be complicated. Note that there is not a metro to the airport.
