Getting around - Congresos y reuniones
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.
