Default Train Sa Pobla to Palma

We're thinking of taking the train from Sa Pobla to Palma on Saturday. Looking at the TIB website it looks as though you can just pay for your tickets by swiping your bank card similar to London underground. Is that correct or is that only in Palma?

There are ticket machines at Sa Pobla and I think they are contactless. We’ve certainly paid by card. You do have to change trains at a solitary station in the middle of nowhere to take the train from Manacor. If you are driving to the station, we’ve found as an alternative that taking the motorway to Festival Park (free parking) and getting the train from there is actually easier. Hope that helps.

Thanks! That wasn't obvious from the pdf timetable on the TIB website...

You just contactless your card at the barrier and again when you get off the train. Like the buses if more than 1 of you just swipe same card and its cheaper. I think trains are only every hour from Sa Pobla. Every 20 mins from Inca as you have the Sa Pobla train, the Mancor train and ones that terminate at Inca.

You could get the bus to Inca and then train from there.

There is. You just come out, down a short path and cross the road and you are in the car park. Not very shaded mind!

It is a good 10 minute walk from the bus stop in Inca to the train station.

Yes (as I said I’ve used it several times), but you’ll find it called “Es Caulls Estacio” on the timetable. It’s a really short walk from the car park and the trains are frequent, so no need to plan time of arrival.

Never realised there was a stop for Festival Park. Always thought you had to drive there.��
