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[edit]

The system has six radial lines[1] 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.
