These Fallas 2023 Valencia will dress again in gunpowder and fireworks, paralyzing some parts of the city, so it is essential to know the best ways to move in your own way.

Changes in public transport due to Fallas in Valencia

Without a doubt, the most recommended option to get around during the Fallas is public transport, even more so after the latest price reductions of the SUMA Card. For this reason, the Valencia City Council has extended the hours, frequencies and stops of public transport during the festivities.

Schedules and special EMT lines for Fallas 2023

It should be noted that the routes of several of the EMT Valencia buses will be affected by the closure of streets during the holidays.

From March 1 to 15, the EMT will implement a special device for the mascletà. From 11:45 a.m., from Monday to Friday and on weekends depending on the fallas acts, traffic from Tetuán-Puerta del Mar to Plaza de San Agustín will be restricted during the mascletà, so buses will not be able to circulate through the inner ring. The service will be restored at approximately 3:00 p.m. in coordination with the Local Police.

For this reason, an interchange point will be set up in the Tetuán-Puerta del Mar area, where regular stops will be made and other provisional ones will be established for other lines. The same procedure will be followed in the surroundings of San Agustín, where regular stops and other provisional ones will be made.

Finally, line C1 will not operate on weekends (February 26 and March 4, 5, 11 and 12) due to the Fallas festivities. During the mascletà, it will be suspended from 11:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
