Just a funny related story about the shuttle in Barcelona. We like to walk and will often make the 30 min stroll from the port to the Ramblas. Last year we had friends who decided to wait (and pay $5) for the shuttle bus which had a pretty long line just outside the port building. Meanwhile, we did our walk, got to the Ramblas, sat down for some coffee and waited for our friends. About 20 min later our friends finally arrived having waited over 45 min to get on the shuttle bus from the port. The thing is that they could have even taken a taxi (if they had 4 to a taxi) for less money than that shuttle.
