If you’re coming to Barcelona and you’d like to use Bolt to move around the city, there’s a few things you should know.
What is Bolt and ride-sharing?
Ride sharing services, such as Uber, Lyft or Bolt, allow individuals to use a smartphone app to arrange a ride with a driver who is using their personal vehicle. This can be a convenient and cost-effective way to get around, especially in urban or crowded areas like Barcelona.
One of the main benefits of ride sharing services is their convenience. With just a few taps on a smartphone app, you can quickly and easily arrange a ride with a driver who is nearby.
Ride sharing services can also be a more affordable option than traditional taxi services. In many cases, ride sharing services offer lower rates than taxis, and they often provide users with the ability to see the estimated cost of their ride before they confirm the booking.
