In the general process of updating the Regulations on Public Passenger Transport, on 7th July 2017, the Regional Transport Consortium (CRTM) has updated and published on its website certain provisions related to behaviours typified as possible infractions as well as their corresponding penalties.

We consider such initiative to be necessary and relevant and it is our belief that the company is obliged to publish its regulations for the sake of public awareness.

All information is available at www.crtm.es/sanciones, This link will allow passengers to have access to such information, for their own benefit as well as for the benefit of the company personnel.


Bicycles are allowed on regular passenger buses for general inner-city and inter-city services between municipalities other than Madrid under the following conditions:

1ª) Both folded and unfolded bicycles are allowed on buses.

2ª) Permission to get your bicycle on our buses will depend on the level of occupation of each bus.

3ª) Passengers accessing the bus with a folding bicycle must fold their bicycle before getting on the bus and keep it folded until they get off the vehicle.

Bicycles must preferably be stored in spaces specifically designed and designated for their adequate transportation, if available on the bus. If no storage space is available, bicycles will be placed in the area reserved for people with reduced mobility if it is unoccupied. If not, or if passengers with reduced mobility were to board the bus, the bicycle owner must move to another space that is adequate for such purpose. The bicycle owner must hold it adequately to avoid any hazards arising from its transportation.
