In Spain, urban bus services vary by municipality, and are therefore, sometimes managed by consortiums, public companies and/or private enterprises that receive concessions. Buses are the most popular mean of inter-urban transportion, and in 2019 they recorded approximately 100 thousand more passengers than interurban rail transportion, the second most popular form. Madrid and Barcelona ranked as the metropolises with the largest bus fleet, and were followed by Valencia and Seville. The latter had 13 bus operators as of 2018, which is less than half the number in the Spanish capital.
