Public transport tickets for the Barcelona metro area will undergo a major revamp on January 1, 2020, in order to benefit frequent travelers. 

The popular 10-journey 'T-10' ticket will give way to the 'T-Casual,' which will also allow 10 journeys, but unlike its predecessor can only be used by one person at a time. 

While the T-10 costs €10.20, the T-Casual will be €1.15 more expensive, at €11.35, which means people who use public transport only now and then will be worse off next year. 

Yet, commuters who use public transport every day will be better off: the new 'T-Usual' will allow the passenger unlimited journeys in a 30-day period for €40. That is €14 cheaper than the current T-Mes, which has the same features, and is €3.50 cheaper than the T-50/30, which allows 50 journeys in 30 days. 

Barcelona and Catalonia institutions joining forces

The revamp is the result of an agreement between the Catalan government, Barcelona's city council, and Barcelona's metro area authority, who argue that they have simplified the system and are rewarding frequent users. 

Meanwhile, the T-Jove, which allows under-25s unlimited journeys for 90 days, will be 25% cheaper than it is now, dropping to €80.
