Estacion de Segovia-Guioma / Segovia-AV (Segovia-Guioma train station) is located 5 km outside the city, but there are bus services every 15 min from the aqueduct, and from there, there is a high speed train connection between Segovia and Madrid (30 min) and Valladolid (Estación de Campo Grande; 40 min) run by AVE with tickets costing 10€. From Estación de Segovia (Segovia train station) there are also slower, slightly cheaper Renfe Cercanias suburban trains (6€) that run to Madrid.

Estación de autobuses de Segovia (Segovia bus station; Paseo Ezequiel González, 12) is the cheapest way of getting to and out of Segovia. There are two bus companies running in the area La Sepulvedana  Madrid, Ávila, Salamanca, and most important local towns like La Granja de San Ildefonso, El Espinar and Linecar – Valladolid, Cuéllar, Arévalo, Aranda de Duero, La Lastrilla, Santa María La Real de Nieva, Coca, Riaza, Ayllón.

The local buses are run by Urbanos de Segovia, although Segovia is so small and all the tourist attractions are located within the walking distance, therefore we doubt you’ll need to use public transport for moving around the town. However, there are 10 local bus lines to choose from and you can check the timetable and the map on urbanosdesegovia.com (normal ticket costs 0,95 €).

Hitch-hiking out

South towards La Granja / Madrid (CL-601)

From Plaza de la Artillería next to the Aqueduct, follow Av. del Padre Claret and get to the 3rd roundabout (the one after the bullring).  We hitched directly on this roundabout and got a lift within 20min.

South towards Madrid (motorway, AP-61)

From Plaza de la Artillería next to the Aqueduct, follow Av. del Padre Claret and turn right at the first roundabout into Av. de Juan Carlos. Follow it until Av. de la Constitución and turn left. Go straight until Ctra de San Rafael which will turn into Ctra de Madrid. It should be possible to hitchhike on its first roundabout.

North towards Valladolid (CL-601)

From Plaza de la Artillería next to the Aqueduct, follow Av de la Via Roma. After the first roundabout it turns into Ctra National where it should be possible to catch a lift joining the C-601 road.

West & North-west towards Ávila & Salamanca (AP-51, A-50)

From in front of the Aqueduct follow Av de Fernández Ladreda until it turns into Calle 3 de Abril. You can start hitchhiking here or alternatively follow it until the river and then turn left.
