Like anywhere, public transportation in Spain is very accessible and affordable in larger cities or areas with large populations sizes, and can be less accessible and frequent in smaller, rural communities. In large cities, it is very common for Program Participants to take the subway (metro) to work, or to hop on the bus or train. In smaller, more rural communities, there will most likely not be a subway (metro) and bus lines will be less frequent. It is common for Program Participants in smaller communities to carpool to work each day with other teachers or to live closer to the school where it is possible to walk or bike to and from work each day.
We encourage everyone to keep an open mind when it comes to commuting to and from work, as well as traveling around Spain. It is important to remember that you will be in a new country with different transportation practices and it will be a great opportunity to embrace the Spanish way of life!
