Shuttle Bus from Castellon Airport (CDT) to Valencia and Castellon

If you are flying into Castellon Airport, then this guide will give you all the latest information on how the bus service from Castellon Airport (CDT) to Valencia, or to Castellon city centre, works.

🔴 Information updated in June 2024.

Castellon Airport (CDT) is located some 27km north of Castellon city, serving and providing international connections to the Mediterranean region of the Costa Azahar, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and unexplored regions of Spain.

This airport is also marketed by Ryanair, WizzAir, and other airlines as Castellon-Valencia Airport, as a secondary airport, serving the city of Valencia (96km away) and the region of Valencia due to its proximity.

One of the most common concerns when flying into Castellon Airport is how to get out of the airport and how difficult it is to find information on whether there is a shuttle bus service at the airport. Well, here is the answer.

Information about the Bus Service at Castellon Airport

There are currently two companies operating bus services at this airport. One of them operates the north line and the other the south line. We explain.

  • Autos Mediterraneo: This company operates the southern line, which connects Castellon Airport with Castellon city (Castellon train station), and once at Castellon train station there are direct trains to Valencia every 30 minutes.
  • Hife: This company operates the northern line, which connects Castellon Airport with the town of Torreblanca (Torreblanca Train Station), and once at the train station, you can easily connect by train with other tourist towns such as Benicassim, Oropesa, Peniscola, Vinaroz; or even, although it is not the best option, also with Valencia, Tarragona or Barcelona.

As mentioned above, this service is provided by Autos Mediterráneo. Tickets can be purchased online or on arrival at the airport. The service covers the route Castellon Airport ↔ Castellon Bus Station. Once you arrive at the bus/train station in Castellon, you will have to take a regional train to Valencia.

Although there were rumours that the direct bus route between Castellon Airport would be reactivated, for the moment it is still not running.
