This page gives information on transport available in the Orba area, including bus, train, motoring, taxis and tram services. It also offers info about Beniconnect airport transfers and airport parking.
There is a public bus service from Orba to Dénia bus station run by Autocares Carrio which originally stopped at the junction of Calle Mayor and Avenida Americas.

The train service in Spain is excellent, especially the high speed trains (AVEs) which run between most of the main cities. A train service to Valencia is available from Gandia and takes about 50 minutes, but if you go to Xeraco, the first stop north of Gandia, you can park for free. If you are taking the high speed rail service elsewhere the local leg (cercania) of the journey (ie Xeraco to Valencia) is free. The Renfe website gives timetables and allows you to book online. Please note that there are two stations in Valencia, Estacion del Nord and Joaquin Sorolla so check your tickets to be sure you know which station your train arrives at or leaves from. The two stations are close and a free shuttle bus runs regularly between them, taking just a few minutes, or you can walk in about 10 minutes.
This website is really useful if you're trying to book rail travel within Spain.
There is a great deal of information available about motoring in Spain and some of it can be very confusing. We've put together useful links about motoring, driving rules and laws, ITV tests, Spanish driving licence issues, etc.
Please note that Spain has strict drink driving laws, only allowing 0.5 milligrams of alcohol per millilitre of blood. If you're a new driver (ie one who passed the test within the last two years) the alcohol limit is only 0.1mg.

Orba is in a good position being equidistant from Alicante and Valencia airports. There are many options available for airport parking at Alicante and Valencia Airports. We have listed a few here with links to their websites.
Note: The tram service L9 from Denia is currently out of service and a bus will take passengers to Calpe.
There is no Renfe train service running down the coast between Gandia and Alicante, but the Costa Blanca or Alicante Metropolitan TRAM (TRAM Metropolitano de Alicante), operates within Alicante city and the surrounding area and runs for 93 km along the northern coast of the province from Alicante. The network stops at many places along the coast between Alicante and Dénia, including Terra Mitica. This narrow gauge light railway combines different modes of rail services: a partially underground modern tramway through Alicante city centre, and a tram-train from Alicante to Benidorm, and onwards by tram on line L9 from Benidorm to Altea, Calpe and eventually to Dénia.
Information, route maps and timetables can be found at the official website: www.tramalicante.es. Timetables can also be obtained from Dénia station on Passeig Del Saladar, or from tourist information offices.
