Transport by bus or coach is very popular in Spain since Spanish roads connect practically every city and destination while the rail lines are more limited in terms of destinations and schedules. The lack of high speed trains in Spain has been a problem in the past, now partly solved by the new high speed rail lines which connect Madrid to a number of popular destinations.
Buses go from Santander to Barcelona, Bilbao, Burgos, León, Madrid, Oviedo, Palencia and Salamanca.
