“Aerobuses look different to the standard Barcelona TMB buses. The Aerobuses for T1 and T2 are light and dark blue and have 'Aerobus' written down the side in a bubbly style of writing. The Aerobus stops at various locations in Barcelona centre. See below, under 'Bus Route of Barcelona Airport Express Bus' for the list of drop off and pick up points. The main bus stops in Barcelona city centre are at Plaça Catalunya and Plaça Espanya which are also Barcelona's main transport hubs. At Barcelona Airport there are stops outside each of the terminals. ”
