Bus services around Palma and the south west of the island are excellent, with regular services running between the city and the surrounding towns and resorts. Further afield, things can be a little less regular and predictable.
The bus service in and around Palma is provided by EMT - Empresa Municipal de Transports. Outside of Palma and the immediate area, many services are operated by Transport de les Illes Balears.
Majorca has two railway lines, each of which begins in Palma, at Placa d'Espanya.
The first of Majorca's railway tracks runs north west to the town of Soller, through 27km of stunning countryside, through the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range aboard handsome, traditional mahogany and brass carriages.
This is an enjoyable 55 minute journey, which can be further extended by taking the 'Orange Express' tram from Soller down to the port area of Puerto de Soller, which takes about 20 minutes. There are usually five trains each day.
For more information about the Soller train service, contact Tren de Sóller, Plaç a d'Espanya, 2, Palma de Mallorca. Tel: (+34) 971 752 051, Fax: (+34) 971 631 222, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The second of Majorca's railways tracks runs north, across the somewhat less breathtaking plains of central Majorca, to the town of Inca. This journey takes about 35 minutes, and there are regular departures throughout the day.
For more information, contact Ferrocarril d'Inca, Estació Plaç a Espanya, Palma de Mallorca. Tel: (+34) 971 752 245, fax: (+34) 971 501 454.
