The old city center of Zaragoza is not large but has much to offer. Visitors can take much of it in, if not all of the old city by foot. If you’re looking to head out a bit then the Bono Bus is probably the best bet. It will get you to most destinations rather quickly and the fares are quite affordable.
The Tram or Tranvia is excellent and may be good for crossing from north to south and also as means to switch to or from bus. With the swipe card Tarjeta BUS you can switch within an hour at same cost as single route journey. The Tarjeta BUS card basic cost is €2 plus whatever you wish to charge with minimum €5. Using the card means each journey costs 74 cents instead of the normal fare of €1.35. The card will pay for itself quite quickly and one card can be used for more than one passeneger traveling together. Just swipe it twice. When transferring swipe again on new bus or tram and it just recognises the fare has been paid. You can buy the card and charge it at many TABAC shops. The one at 37 Av. César August just on the corner with Calle del Conde de Aranda near a cafe is good as it is close to the main central sights and tram route. But much more information about Zaragoza bus on here
If you’re heading further out or looking to get back to your hotel late at night then a taxicab is probably the best move. Cabs aren’t as plentiful in Zaragoza as they are in many other European cities, but that doesn’t mean you should have too much of a time trying to get one. Cabs will be available at many of the larger destinations and attractions as well as at many hotels. Hailing a cab on the street can be a bit trickier, but you’re still bound to have offers for ride. Just be sure to agree upon the fare before beginning your trip.
For day trips and to see sights in throughout Aragon you may consider renting a car. The roads outside of the towns are well traveled, but traffic can be light in many parts. The roads in this part of Spain are well maintained in most parts. Be sure to watch for aggressive drivers and be warned that some of the roads aren’t as well marked as they could be. Rental cars are available at the airport and in the city center.
You can rent bikes by joining the Bizi bike scheme / useful for exploring outside the old centre of Zaragoza. All the information is contained in this web
