Getting to the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
Valencia Airport is located in the nearby town of Manises, about 8 km away from the city. Flights arriving from major Spanish and European cities land there. Furthermore, Valencia connects with destinations all over the world through Madrid and Barcelona. For more information, call the following number: +34 961 59 85 00.
From the airport you can take a taxi or a bus.
By taxi. You can take a taxi from Manises to the University; the journey takes about 25 minutes and costs about 16-20 euros (the taxi journeys that start at the airport are always more expensive because they include an excess fare of 3,50 euros).
By bus. There are cheaper possibilities: at the airport you can take a Fernanbús bus. There are two lines that do this journey: line 150 goes to the bus station (the fare is 1,20 euros) and line 152 -known as the aerobus- goes to Calle Bailén (the fare is 2,50 euros). Both buses have different timetables and they do not take the same time in reaching their respective destinations. Line 150 has bus stops along Avenida del Cid, Calle Linares, Calle Ángel Guimerá and Avenida de Fernando el Católico. On the other hand, the aerobus goes past every 20 minutes and does a more direct journey. It only has two stops (on Avenida del Cid and on Calle de Àngel Guimerà) before reaching its final destination at Calle Bailén. For more information, click here.
Underground. There are two underground lines which link the airport, the city centre and the port.. Take line 3 (towards Rafelbunyol or Palmaret), get off at the 15th stop (Benimaclet) and transfer to line 4 (towards Doctor Lluch). The second stop leaves you at the UPV entrance. A single ticket may seem a bit expensive: 1,80 euros. For more information on underground stations, timetables and fares, click here.
