descripció de portes del autobùs:

'El número de portes serà de 2 i de doble fulla, una davantera i una altre central, davant de l’eix de darrera, la fulla davantera s’obrirà cap a dins i la central cap a l’exterior.'

cap a dins - inwards / cap a l'exterior - outwards
Explanation:
'Cap' indicates the direction in which something/someone moves. So, 'cap a dins' would be 'inwards' or 'towards the interior' of something and 'cap a l'exterior' would be 'outwards' or 'towards the outer part' of something.

agree  psicutrinius: Exactly. A "rule" to remember this could be that, since "cap" means "head" (litterally), "cap a" means "heading to", and in this case, "towards".
