The transport infrastructure in Mallorca is very good. If you want to explore the island by bus or train it will certainly help if you are based in Palma.

The hub of the islands transportation network is based in the Plaza España, from here you can reach any part of the island. There is a bus that runs from the Airport directly to the Plaza España, connecting you to your final destination.

Maybe you would even like to travel by ferry to Ibiza or Menorca, while on you stay in Mallorca.

There are various forms of transport available

EMT

These are the local buses (blue & silver) that will transport you within Palma and its outskirts.
Prices - 1.25 Euro for all journeys (you do not need to explain where you are going, you can just get on a bus and just say uno (1) or dos (2) and the bus driver will charge you 1.25 or 2.50 accordingly.
The only exception is the trip to and from the Airport which costs 2 Euros
