City Plans and Infrastructure: Valencia 2022

Valencia has big plans and changes in store for this year in terms of infrastructure and urban planning. It makes the city even more liveable and pleasant to live in. Here are some of the new city plans of Valencia:

Metro line 10: Alacante – Natzaret

In the spring of 2022, the time has finally come. The construction of Metro line 10 came to a standstill in 2011 but is now ready within a few months. The 5.3-kilometer metro line has 8 stops (3 stops underground and 5 above ground). The line connects the historic center with the Ruzafa district, the City of Arts & Sciences, and it ends in the Nazaret district.

AVLO Valencia – Madrid from €7

From Valencia’s Sorolla station, the AVE high-speed train runs to Madrid in 1 hour 40 minutes. From 21st of February, the new AVLO train will also run on this route at the same speed of approximately 300 kilometers per hour to cover the 350 kilometers. The big difference with this train is the reduced price for a single ticket starts at €7 and it runs on sustainable electricity.

SUMA: bus, metro, train

SUMA is the name of the new public transport card for Valencia. You save up to 55% with this card and you can use it for the bus EMT, metro-bus, metro, and the cercanías (train for short distances). SUMA 10 is available in 3 zones: zone 1 within the city and immediately outside the city €8 for 10 rides, zone 2 further outside the city €12 for 10 rides and zone 3, the airport is €20 for 10 rides. You can also take out a monthly subscription for unlimited use.


The municipality of Valencia has purchased hundreds of new buses to renew and expand its fleet. Old buses have been donated through the charity Cooperación Internacional – IYC to a project in Senegal to improve the quality of life and accessibility to schools. The new line 70 connects Bignola with Kadiamor and Djikesse in Senegal.

City plans Valencia: Plaza del Mercado and Plaza de la Reina

The new Plaza del Mercado is beginning to take shape. The square is now car-free and in springtime the trees will be planted, among them some big palm trees. The other refurbishment of the Plaza de la Reina has been halted for half a year. This because remnants of late Roman walls have been found under the square and because the parking lot that lies partly under the square was in poor condition. The green light has now been given to proceed and the new Plaza de la Reina is expected to be ready by the end of July this year. It is possible that the square will open temporarily during the Las Fallas festival in March.
