The main means of transport are:  TUSSAM buses, underground trains, trams and taxis, while the city has one of the best infrastructures in Spain for getting around the city by bicycle withsevici and its specially-adapted lanes. In view of the fact that Seville is a flat city, this is a very practical option

The main railway station is Santa Justa, where Renfe’s middle-distance and AVE and Alvia high-speed trains arrive; there is also San Bernardo station, where commuter and Avant trains, TUSSAM city buses and the underground system converge. There is also San Pablo Airport, run by AENA and located 10 kilometres from the city, with a single terminal (T1) and SVQ as its IATA code.
