Cercanías Valencia (Valencian: Rodalia de València) is the commuter rail service that serves Valencia, Spain and its metropolitan area. It is operated by Cercanías Renfe, the commuter rail division of RENFE, the former monopoly of rail services in Spain. The network is owned by Adif, the national railway infrastructure company.
The Cercanías Valencia network includes six lines, 252 km of track and 66 stations.
Network and stations
The system has six radial lines to/from the city centre. Each line is colour-coded on maps and timetables.
Stations are in six concentric zones numbered 1-6. Zone 1 covers the city centre and Zone 6 includes the stations at the end of each line except C-4 which ends in Zone 1. The system's main interchange stations are at Valencia Nord, Sagunt and Silla.
Lines C-1, C-2, C-5 and C-6 terminate at Valencia Nord; lines C-3 and C-4 terminate at Valencia Sant Isidre. MetroValencia lines 1 and 5 connect the Nord and Sant Isidre stations.
CIVIS services run on lines C-1, C-2, C-3 and C-6. These are semi-fast services which only call at selected stations; typically they run into Valencia in the morning peak and out of Valencia in the evening peak.
Tickets and fares
All tickets are priced according to the station zones.
As of March 2014, single fares range from € 1.75 for one zone to € 5.70 for all six zones. Return fares range from € 2.40 to € 8.60.
The "Tarjeta Dorada" provides a 40% discount on single and return fares to all passengers aged 60+, students, passengers with disabilites and others.

|RENFE Class 592 (diesel multiple unit)||Macosa-MTM|
