Very efficient. Very inexpensive. Very clean. Safest city I've have ever been to. Trains run every 5-10 minutes. Very easy to figure out, buy tickets and navigate.

Found the metro system excellent in Bilbao. Not expensive (1.50 Euros) and you can go through Bilbao top to bottom. Trains are clean and relatively quiet and the ride is smooth. They come frequently enough. It is what you hope public transit can be.

The Metro is great and cheap and it goes to the seaside at Plentzia, maybe the Northern line could be extended? We did find it quite hot travelling the other day, but nothing like the Underground.

We like small metro systems. This one is fast, cheap, clean and safe. The centre of Bilbao isn't very large and can easliy be walked across, but when your legs get tired, hit the metro. Day Pass under €5
