  • 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.

    Sevilla Transportation

    A few VTers have said they have no problem taking a subway or metro but they find buses too difficult. While I can understand their concerns, Sevilla's bus system is well laid out and inexpensive. Sevilla's bus system is run by Tussam, a local company. Tussam operates about 40 daily bus routes and a tram line. Once we learned how they worked it...

    Palma de Mallorca Transportation

    Whilst I was planning our trip I looked up different modes of transfer options, the taxis are really expensive as are the hopper buses. The Palma number 1 airport bus was 2.50euro per person and was an excellent and reliable service every 15 minutes. On arrival you walk out of arrivals the bus stop is well signposted and easy to get to. Save a bit...

So....you've arrived at Granada bus station and you don't want to take a taxi onwards (there are plenty of taxis waiting outside the bus station entrance)? OK, that's easy...

    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.

    Sevilla Transportation

    Santa Justa is the train station in Seville, and it's in the Nervion district. There are trains connecting Seville to many cities and towns in Andalusia and beyond. I took a train to go to Jerez de la Frontera for the Feria del Caballo (horse fair), and the ride wasn't very long. I spent the day there and came back on the last train of the evening.

There are a couple of others from Algeciras, so that would mean getting the local service from La Linea to Algeciras. I think it is timetabled at 40 minutes ish, but I would allow at least an hour. And then you have to queue in Algeciras...
