Due to the crisis caused by Covid-19, which will limit all public events in the coming months, we are sorry to announce that the 11th edition of the Classic Bus Rally has been postponed to a new date yet to be determined. When we can confirm a new date, it will be communicated through our official channels.

The 11th edition of the Classic Bus Rally is postponed to a new date due to the Covid-19.

You can return to Barcelona for free on Sagalés line buses, showing the gadget of the Rally that will be given to you when you get one of the passes to travel on classic buses.

Due to the limitations regarding the circulation of two-floor buses, due to their characteristics, the vehicles of this type vary their course:
- In Montcada i Reixac, these vehicles will travel through the C-17 instead of entering the center of the town, returning to the rest of the vehicles in front of the Mossos police station on Pla de Matabous street.
- In Santa Perpètua de la Mogoda, as they can not pass under the Rodalies bridge on Avinguda Tres, they will go straight to the C-59 motorway.
