Comunidad de Madrid Transportation

  • Barajas airport

    Madrid Transportation

    One of the simplest and cheapest ways to get to Madrid central from the airport is take the metro. A single trip was 5 Euro. The airport line is line 8. Once on the train, go to the end of the line (Nuevos Ministerios). Travel time is about 17 from the airport to Nuevos Ministerios. Then take other lines depending on where you're heading off to.

  • Metro (subway)

    Madrid Transportation

    When I am travelling I generally try to use public transport, partially for reasons of budget but moreso because I think it is a great way of immersing yourself in the everyday life of wherever you are. Be it a Philippino jeepney, a Burmese pick-up truck or a big red London bus you can really get "up close and personal" with the locals. Sure, you...

  • Atocha Railway Station

    Madrid Transportation

    Atocha is Madrid's biggest train station (there is also Chamartin, but it's smaller). I took a train to/from Seville at that station in 2014. The station is huge and has a lot of shops and restaurants. It is also connected to the airport through the metro and Cercanias train, so if you need to get to/from the airport, there is no need to pay a...

  • Taxis

    Madrid Transportation

    the new law this year makes it easier for the visitor to take a taxi, flat rate of 30 Euros from Barajas terminals to the city center. the meter automatically marks 30,00 when you enter the car to make sure it is the fare. Its very easy as there is always a long line of cars available. The ride is very nice and they know how to avoid traffic, I...

    Madrid Transportation

    My wife and myself decided to travel to Toledo from Madrid for a day trip. On the return trip we checked in at the ticket counter and decided to return at a scheduled time. Having to wait a half hour we went for a bite to eat. Unfortunately we missed our bus and hopped on the next bus not realizing each seat is booked. We had to return to the...

    Madrid Transportation

    Our tour company was Globus Vacations and transport was on a modern coach with plenty of good seating. I enjoyed the back seat on many days although there were plenty of normal seating available. The photo tells the story better than I can write it!

  • Chamartin Railway Station

    Madrid Transportation

    In the Spring of 1981, after my sister's wedding, my cousin and I departed from the Charmartin train station to go to Paris. Little did I know that within a year I would be living in Madrid in the neighborhood named after this station. As to the look on my face I believe this can be attributed to being young and stupid and impatient for some good...

  • Train

    Madrid Transportation

    The Cercanias train is a commuter train that runs all over the city. There is also a line that goes to/from the airport (terminal T4), which will save you a lot of money in taxi fares! It's also a lot quicker than taking the metro to the airport. The airport line stops at Atocha and Chamartin train stations, and the ride between Atocha and the...

    Madrid Cercanias stop at Nuevos Ministerios, Chamartin and other stations in Madrid, In the section of their route between Atocha and Chamatin they go underground but they are distinct from the Metro. They are mainly used for trips outside the city of Madrid but within the wider Comunidad de Madrid. There is just one line that runs nowhere near the...

  • Plane

    Madrid Transportation

    If you are going on to a domestic flight after passport control and customs, it can be a bit confusing. You need to take the train to Gates E, H, and J. I expected 3 stops on the train—one for each gate area—and I was concerned because I didn’t know which one I needed. The Departures board just listed EHJ as my gate! It would have helped to know...

  • Big Red Bus- Madrid Vision

    The big red tour bus, Madrid Vision, is a great way to get an overview of the city, learn a little history (in your native language), and have all day transportation to the major sites. You can get on and off the bus wherever and whenever you'd like. There are three different bus routes- a modern tour, historical tour, and monumental tour. There...

  • Where are all of the street signs?

    First off, street names seem to be an arbitrary method of navigation throughout most of Spain. If you're looking for your destination it is best to find the closest Plaza to your destination and follow the city signs or Metro and Bus signs to that Plaza and then find your location from there.If you must rely on street names you will not find them...

  • Quickest, Coolest, Cheapest Transport in...

    We've now had the opportunity to use all of the transportation options in Madrid and the Metro is by far our favorite. You can take it all over town including some of the outskirts. You sacrifice the view above the street but the speed and airconditioning are well worth it. The Metro is a well oiled machine and when you transfer trains they are...
