Trains leave Plaça Catalunya station at 10:18 or 11:18 (please double check with RENFE for definitive times. ) arriving in Tordera 1.5 hours later. From Sants they are 5 minutes earlier and Arc de Triomf 2 minutes later. A city bus, parked in the station forecourt, meets the second train. Fare: €0.50.
