What are the current prices of public transportation bus and train services? Are there any monthly/weekly passes?

There are at least 2 companies in "Mallorca" providing public transportation. Are you refering to Palma de Mallorca (city) or to the island? –  nsn Mar 15 '13 at 15:04

Just a thought, I think driving in Mallorca is the best way to get around this island. –  toy Mar 15 '13 at 15:15
    
@user4401 The bus network in Mallorca radiates out like a fan from the Capital - Palma. You can basically go anywhere by bus from Palma, the disadvantage being to go somewhere else you will have to go back to Palma, and then onward again. –  Simon Mar 15 '13 at 19:02
    
I am referring to the whole island. Car is usually a good choice, but it's one of the most expensive at the same time. –  user4401 Mar 15 '13 at 21:32
    
I have been in Mallorca in 2004 and a really recommend to you rent a car. I don't know if you have checked the prices or if you are able to drive but if you can rent a car. –  Afetter Mar 31 at 4:02

Balearic Islands Transport (Transports de les Illes Balears - TIB) provides an extensive network of public buses throughout Mallorca and also operates the single line Palma Metro.

EMT Palma de Mallorca (Empresa Municipal de Transports de Palma de Mallorca) is responsible for bus services in the City of Palma and its surroundings. The website, in English, has interactive maps showing all routes. EMT also runs a Palma night bus.

Tickets

Passengers are recommended to have the exact change when boarding the bus: tickets cannot be purchased with a note valued at more than a €10.

Residents and non-residents can buy a Citizen Card, which allows holders to board the bus without having to pay cash. These can be bought from the Town Hall and also allow reduced fares.

Trains on Mallorca:

The Majorca rail network on the Spanish Island of Mallorca has three lines to four destinations from the Estació Intermodal/Plaça d'Espanya station in Palma.

Trams on Mallorca:

There is just one old line that goes from Soller to Port de Soller. It is museum tram and a tourist attraction. You can buy tickets off the conductor; a single ride is around €3.

Check the transit system website it has been fully updated.

You have all fares in each line page, plus a route planner (accessible from "home" page or "find your route" page).

This website also works for Menorca island.
