Ryanair flights arrive and depart at terminal T2.
The bus stop is in front of the terminal. Tickets at a vending machine or just before boarding the bus. 5,30 euros one way (price in sept '11), to Piazza Espanya and Piazza Catalunya. It can take 30 min. or more according to the traffic on the way.
The train station is five minutes away (stairs inside at the left end of the terminal, then a long passageway to the station. 3,15 euros (sept '11) to the Sants station, downtown - a 20 minutes trip.

Two pieces of advice :
- RYR usually dock at an air-bridge : if you are in a hurry, you'd better take a seat in the front rows - it can take up to 10 min for row 33 to deplane ...
- When arriving by train to take a flight, no need to go at the floor level if you have no baggage to check : the security control is on the upper level (to the left just at the end of the passageway).
