This paper aims to analyze the use and financing mechanisms of public transport in urban areas in Spain and, in the light of the economic arguments that justify its subsidy, suggest possible ways of action that guarantee financial stability. As a result of the analysis, it is defended, first of all, to have a common methodology that allows calculating the level and efficient rate structure in each city. Second, seek mechanisms that encourage public administrations and transport operators efficiency and, finally, diversify the source of the resources necessary to finance urban transport.
