There are only two lines in the entire city, so it’s very simple to use. It’s also very clean and cheap, and much quicker than walking long distances.

Everything that a 21st century public transport system should be. Easy to navigate, clean and simple styling. Fair prices and good frequencies.

Smart move to give the task to Norman Foster. One of my favourite architects. And apparently, he enjoyed the city as much as I do now.

Very efficient. Very inexpensive. Very clean. Safest city I've have ever been to. Trains run every 5-10 minutes. Very easy to figure out, buy tickets and navigate.

Found the metro system excellent in Bilbao. Not expensive (1.50 Euros) and you can go through Bilbao top to bottom. Trains are clean and relatively quiet and the ride is smooth. They come frequently enough. It is what you hope public transit can be.

The Metro is great and cheap and it goes to the seaside at Plentzia, maybe the Northern line could be extended? We did find it quite hot travelling the other day, but nothing like the Underground.
