Public Transportation

If you are going to be using public transportation often, the best thing to do is to buy the Consorcio de Transporte Card.  It is a rechargeable (green) card that is valid for all public transportation in Seville and surrounding towns. You can buy the card at Estancos (tobacco shops) and most kiosks. The card itself costs 1.50 € and then you charge the amount of money you would like to have on the card.
