  • The public transportation in Spain is extremely good, and is certainly up to par to the other European countries.  Over the last twenty years, Spain developed a major campaign for upgrading all aspects of their public transportation systems.  In Spain, there are many international airports (total is 156) such as "Iberia", Spainair", and "Air Europe" just to name a few.  The city streets throughout the country of Spain total 150,000 kms, and the highways in Spain total 663,795 kms.  These highways stretch from the northern part of Spain, to the south and they are well maintained.  The speed limit on these highways are 130 km/h, 90 km/h on other roads, and 50 km/h in highly populated areas.  Another form of transportion in Spain is its trains.  There are trains that travel great distances between such places as Madrid and Seville, and there is also a variety of short distance local trains, tourist trains, and suburban commuter trains.  The surburban commuter trains are only a second class rate and they stop at every station along its route.  Metro lines are also located in Spain.  The metro lines are the easiest way to commute around the large cities, but they are very crowed during rush hours.
