Sitges has no internal train or metro system. In many cases you may simply want to walk around the town. However, some destinations, such as the golf and tennis clubs or some of the larger hotels, are slightly outside of the very centre. Therefore, it is useful to know about the transport options within Sitges itself. Sitges has bus routes running to three separate areas of Sitges - all beginning their journey outside Sitges train station. It also has two taxi companies operating within the town.
This page provides links to the main transport options in Sitges - buses, taxis, car rental and bicycle rental. Each page privides detailed information on the transport option in question - where to catch the transport, prices, opening times, timetables and advice.

There are two taxi companies in Sitges. One has its base outside the main tourist information office and the other is located outside Sitges train station. A taxi may be very useful if you are arriving into Sitges with large suitcases and need to get to one of the less central hotels, such as Terramar or Melia. The buses do often cover the same routes, however they are less regular and could prove difficult with lots of luggage.
There are two car rental companies in Sitges. There is the local company - Vila Rent and the international company - Avis. Most of Sitges' residents own cars or scooters due to the hilly nature of the area - lugging shopping home up a steep road in the sunshine can prove difficult! Car rental could also prove particularly useful on your holidays if you are interested in making trips to the surrounding areas, for more information on day trips from Sitges, see my Guide to Day Trips from Sitges.
There are two shops in Sitges offering bike rental. Bikes are available for periods of an hour to up to one week. It is worth speaking to the shops directly regarding prices. They are both small companies and may be open to negotiation regarding hiring a bike for an extended period or for a large group. Despite Sitges' many hills, a ride along the promenade could prove very pleasant. The surrounding inland of Garraf is also popular amongst keen cyclists.
If you are planning a trip to Sitges and have never been before, it is worth noting that it is located in a very hilly area. Therefore, what seems like a reasonable distance to walk or cycle may seem less appealing when it involves a steep uphill climb!
Sitges is a reasonably small town, but there are many circumstances when you may require transport of some kind. Remember that the bus stop and taxi ranks are both located directly outside Sitges train station, making it useful if you are arriving into Sitges via train.
