Ways to get to Valencia City from Castellon Airport.
First of all, and coming back again to our reference at the top of this article about the importance of planning your trip, at Castellon Airport you cannot take the Valencia Metro, and you cannot take any train. There are not train stations at Castellón Airport. I noticed that is one of the most common mistakes. People looks for information about Valencia Airport and find that there is a Metro Station at the airport, but Castellon Airport is sold as Castellon-Valencia Airport due to its closeness, but is not Valencia Airport, it is Castellon Airport.
By Bus directly from Castellón Airport to Valencia.
There is a shuttle bus service provided by Autos Mediterráneo company. The ticket costs 20€ from Castellon Airport to Valencia city. Bus stop in Valencia is located in paseo de la Alameda. Visit our article Shuttle Bus service at Castellon Airport for more detailed information about this service.
The trip takes between 1 hour and 2 hours, depending on the bus stops. Let me explain you. If the bus does not stop at Torreblanca, Oropesa, Benicassim or Castellón because no passenger has bought a ticket for these cities, the bus will go directly to Valencia, and it will only take about one hour. At worst, that is, all the stops, the journey lasts 2 hours.
Stops in Valencia: 1
By Bus to Castellón Railway station + Train “Renfe Cercanías” to Valencia.
This option is a little bit cheaper than going to Valencia directly and gives you 3 different stops into Valencia city.

This is other and maybe the most exclusive option avaible at the airport… or maybe not. Let me explain.
The service can be provided by the same company that offers the shuttle bus service. We have left you a link above. Or this service can be provided by other transfer companies.
