The Espai Mercè Sala takes us to 1922: the Tilling-Stevens exhibition
The TMB exhibition hall, located at Diagonal station (L3-L5), presents “Tilling-Stevens, 1922: The oldest bus on the Barcelona network”. This exhibition explains how the mobility of Barcelona changed when the Compañía General de Autobuses (CGA) acquired the Tilling-Stevens TS3A and launched four lines that started the bus network in the city.
The exhibition forms part of the activities for this year's Centenary of the Bus Network.
