The Aerobús is a shuttle that connects terminals T1 and T2 of Barcelona airport with the city centre. The buses run 365 days a year with a very short waiting time, usually about five minutes. So you do not have to worry about timetables.
In T1, the station is located in the basement. Just follow the signs. On your way from the arrival hall to the bus stop you go past the tourist info, where you can collect your pre-booked Barcelona Card. The issuing office is located next to the entrance to the airport chapel beneath the escalator that leads into the basement of the terminal. The A1 Aerobús line starts from the T1 terminal.
At the T2 terminal, you have two stops that are served by the A2 line. The first one is located at T2B, T2A is located at the back. The second one is located outside the T2C terminal. You can get to both stops by going directly from the arrival hall to the exit. In T2B you get to the stop by walking directly past the tourist info, where your pre-booked Barcelona Card can be picked up.
There are several stops along the journey from where you can change to the Metro, FGC or Renfe. Both lines stop at Plaça Espanya, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes/Urgell, Plaça Universitat and the terminus Plaça Catalunya on the way to the city center. In the opposite direction, buses leave from Plaça Catalunya and you can board at Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes/Urgell and Plaça Espanya. Buses in this direction do not stop at Plaça Universitat.
