Streetcar

Main Article: Tram de Murcia

There is an experimental service tramway, a vehicle that does not use fossil fuels, but electricity. The tram connects the Plaza Circular with the expansion of the area north of the city (Zona Juan Carlos I). This line is part of a project that includes several lines of which some are under construction.

Rail

Murcia has a railway station called Murcia del Carmen, located in the neighborhood of the same name.

Several long distance lines connect the city with Madrid via the Albacete and Cartagena tracks, as well as to Levante Montpellier. Murcia is the center of a local network. The C-1 line connects the city with Alicante, and C-2 connects Murcia with Lorca and Aguilas in its passage through a part of the province of Almeria

Until 1985 there was a direct connection to the cities of Granada and Andalusia. The railroad was called the Almanzora. In recent years, due to the new boom in rail transport, there are plans to put the line back into operation, connecting the Mediterranean and the port of Algeciras.

Bus

Murcia has a bus station, a public bus company, LATBUS call, and a merger of other smaller transport companies (LIRS, Aumusa, Travimusa) operating in the capital and surrounding towns and cities.

Three buses from Line 4, which run through the main streets and neighborhoods in the city of Murcia, are already powered by biodiesel. This is a pilot project, initiated following an agreement between the Energy Management Agency of Murcia and the city of Murcia in the framework of the European project BioNETT, led nationally by Argemir.

There are also plans to construct a high-speed line Murcia with the Alicante (the line through which the train will go to Madrid), Almeria, and Cartagena. The project includes the underground tracks that will pass through the city.

Airport

Due to the proximity of the airports of San Javier (47 km from the capital by road) and Alicante (70 km), Murcia does not have its own airport. However, there were plans and it was authorized on May 21, 2003, considering the general interest of the State.

An airport will be located in the parish of Corvera, 23 km from Murcia. The Corvera airport will be privately run, which will allow you to travel on low-cost airlines.
