The main public transit operator in Barcelona, TMB, has announced that maintenance work scheduled on Barcelona's metro lines 1, 2, and 5 will cause partial service disruptions until at least September 1.
On Line 1, metro services are suspended between Clot and Fondo as of Saturday, June 29, until at least Friday, August 30. The operator will offer two alternative bus services: Clot - Fabra i Puig, and Onze de Stembro - Fondo.
On Line 2, service will be suspended between the Parallel and Sagrada Familia stations from Saturday, July 27, to Friday, August 30. Travelers can use alternative routes via bus lines D50, H12, and H16 which operate between the affected stations.
