From 9 March, the Sopela bus service, Sopelbus, will be part of the Barik system and passengers can travel using all the Barik card tickets (purse-cards, Bidai temporary and Gazte temporary) and also the Bilbao Bizkaia Card for tourists.
Bizkaia Transport Consortium (CTB) is going to launch the Barik Mobile project, with all the convenience of having your Barik card in your mobile, over the coming months. It will initially be available for users of Gazte 70 and/or Gazte Oro travel cards, valid on the Metro underground service, Bizkaibus, Euskotren, Bilbao tramway, Lejoan Busa bus routes and the Larreineta funicular railway. If you would like to take part in the pilot project, please read the terms and conditions and sign up after 17 February.
Bizkaia Transport Consortium has started the testing phase of the new Barik NFC app on IOS before its mass launch on App Store. Thanks to this App, you can check and top-up Barik cards using any iPhone from 6S version onwards.
