A taxi ride form the airport to Calle de La Paz, which is in the heart of the historic city centre and covering a distance of approximately 11km costs around €19 with an additional 'airport supplement' of around €4. The tarifs are on display in the taxi in Valencian, Spanish and English but are difficult to see. The same journey back from Calle de La Paz to the airport half the price! These fees are accurate as of August 2008.

For metro (subway and tram) and bus (EMT) transport it is possible to buy cards called ''bonos'' in kiosks and tobacco shops. These are used for 10 journeys. The cards are contactless, and can be topped up and changed to different types once empty.  There are a few different cards, so make sure you get the right one for your trip.

For train and bus transport it is possible to buy ''bonos'' in kiosks and tobacco shops. Both ''Bonobus'' (which as of June 2009 costs €6) and ''Bonometro'' (which as of July 2011 costs €6.55 for one zone and is also available at ticket machines) allow for 10 rides. If you want to use two lines to reach your destination, you have to use a ''B-T'' (which as of July 2008 costs €7).
  
The Metro only paper tickets are sold at the metro ticket machines.  For a plastic card that includes bus, you will need to buy at tobacconists, authorized kiosks, and Metro stations.
 
 
''Bonobus'' is €8.50 to top up on a refillable €2 PVP (plastic) card.  Only for bus.
 
 
''Bonometro'' which costs €8.60 (June 2018) including €1 for refillable paper ticket for Zone A (not including the airport) and is available at the ticket machines in the underground stations.  The metro card journeys are up to 50 minutes for a one zone card including transfers.
 
 
''Bono Travel'' is €9 top-up on a €2 PVP card and works on Bus and Metro. 
 
 
''TuiN'' is a value card which you charge with €10 minimum for the metro.  Each journey within one zone costs €0.72 (June 2018).  The advantage is you can use this card outside of the zone at an additional cost but still at a reduced rate over a single ticket (like to get to the airport).  Top up's are €10 minimum in €1 increments.
 
 
The ''Bono'' and ''TuiN'' cards can be used by multiple people.
 
 
There is the T1/T2/T3 unlimited 1, 2 and 3 day travel cards that include bus and metro for 4,00/6,70/9,70 € respectively (June 2018).  Also a Valencia Tourist card which has unlimited travel and discounts to attractions.  These cards are for only one person.

The '''Metro Valencia''' [http://www.metrovalencia.com/] consists of five lines (from which one is a tramway to the beach) and connects the suburbs with the city. As of Apr 2013, the one-way fare for one zone is €1.50.  The ticket itself costs an additional €1 and contains a rechargeable chip.  This metro system is not extensive, but can get you to major points within the city. If you want to take the tram, you have to buy a ticket from the machine, then validate it, before you get on.

If you use the metro a lot, you should consider getting a ''TuiN'', ''Bonometro'' (see above), or a one-, two- or three-day pass, which can be quite economical. For just over €22, you can ride for 72 hours on the metro and tram as much as you like during that time; a bonus is that if you buy a ticket at, for instance, 16:00 on a Monday, it will expire not on Wednesday night, but on 16:00 Thursday.  Or a €10 ''TuiN'' pass will buy you 13+ journeys in one zone and the card can be shared among multiple people.
