Its average size and flat configuration make Valladolid a perfect city to move around on foot. However, the numerous options for moving around within the town guarantee an adequate service for each person.
AUVASA's more than twenty ordinary lines run through all the districts of Valladolid,
as well as the municipalities of La Cistérniga and Simancas.
At weekends and on the eve of public holidays, it offers five 'Owls', the so-called night bus service, which runs from 10.30 p.m. until 3 a.m.; while on working days AUVASA, links the districts with the city centre from 6.55 a.m., thanks to seven morning lines.
In addition, during sporting and cultural events of special interest (soccer matches, Pingüinos concentration, local fiestas...) it provides a complete special service.
You can check the lines and stops in the bus stops signs of each one. In many of them you will find an electronic panel with the time left for the next vehicle to arrive. This information can also be found on the AUVASA website and in the mobile application: all you have to do is enter the stop number or read the QR code that you will find on the
post or marquee.

The parking lot in the historical center of Valladolid is regulated by a dissuasive system indicated by three colors: blue, the general color; orange, of high rotation, and green, reserved to residents with an identification card.
In the case of both the blue and orange zones, parking time is limited - two hours for the first and one for the second - from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm and from 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm, and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

In Valladolid you will find more than ten parking lots, located in the city center -plaza de Zorrilla, plaza de España, calle Doctrinos, Plaza Mayor, Catedral, plaza del Poniente, plaza del Milenio, plaza Colón, El Corte Inglés and Museo de la Ciencia de Valladolid- or nearby, known as 'dissuasive', and which allow you to park for a whole day for two and a half euros -Casa de la India, Feria de Valladolid, paseo de las Moreras-.
There are two types of fares: the annual Bonobici fare, which costs 25 euros and is valid as credit, and the Occasional User fare, which costs five euros for a weekly card and is also valid as credit. Both types have usage-based fees, which will be deducted from the fare amount, and in the case of Bonobici, the first half-hour of use is always free.
In addition, in 2023, the innovative public bicycle parking network called 'Parkbici' will be introduced, offering nearly 300 spaces (check the Parkbici parking map), and the new public bicycle system called 'BIKI' will provide users with over 700 mechanical bikes and more than 200 electric bikes, which can be parked at nearly 100 designated stations distributed throughout the city. You can find the location of these stations and the service fares on the BIKI Valladolid website.
As a general rule, bicycles travel on the roadway and bike lanes. However, the use of pedestrian zones is allowed between 10:00 PM and 8:30 AM. Regarding parking, there are designated areas for bicycle parking. If those areas are full, bicycles can be parked on sidewalks, pedestrian areas, and promenades with a minimum width of 3 meters (never at traffic lights, regulation cabinets, signage supports, loading and unloading zones, parking spaces for disabled people, reserved spaces, pedestrian crossings, or elements attached to facades or historic buildings). You can find the complete regulations in the Regulatory Ordinance for Bicycle Mobility within the municipal area of Valladolid.
