Bus Line C6. Alicante-Airport

Alicante’s buses are divided in two colours: blue and red. All red buses operate within the municipality of Alicante city hall. Blue buses go further to transport people into other municipalities. The airport is inside Elche area so blue is the colour of your bus. The line name is C-6. About time, it takes less than 1h to get to the airport if there is traffic and about 30 min if no traffic or at night.

Where to Get it From

The blue C-6 bus will stop right outside the terminal doors. On the right side hand if you just got out from the airport’s terminal.

In Alicante, you can get in or get off on places like Plaza de los Luceros, Alfonso el Sabio or the train station. All those are very convenient location as you can commute to the Renfe’s trains, Tram or other bus services very easily.

Prices

The price for one single trip is 3.85€ that you can pay using a contactless card or cash. Card is probably the best option if you have a bank that won’t charge you when paying in euros. In here you have some tips if you want to open a Euro account in a Spanish bank.

If you pay by cash, it is very important to know that the biggest note you can use with no issues is 10€. You will get your change back as expected. The bus driver will accept 20€ notes as well but they will give you a check to pick up your cashback in their offices at Avenida de Denia, 155 (03015 Alicante). You will need to spend time on that if you want your money back.

If you need to go to the airport often you can buy a card or bond (2€) and charge the card with 10 trips that cost 12€. That is a good option if you are working at the airport or picking up people often. Search in their website for more info.
