Traveling between stations in the capital of Spain

If you travel through the capital of Spain, and you get to the airport, or any of the train stations, and ask yourself what do I do now? Well, here is the solution

Sometimes when we started our trip we did not stop to think about how I can access from the airport to the city, or from the train station. Most of the time, we do not know if there is transportation between stations; transportation that in some cases it is convenient and economical.


If you arrive at the airport:

If you arrive at the airport:

• There are four terminals (T) in the airport of Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suarez: T1, T2, T3 and T4.
• There is a free bus connecting terminals.
• There is a bus that makes the connection between T1, T2 and T3; and another bus to connect these three terminals with T4.
• These buses are for free and there is signaling where their stops are. Still, information services may also indicate you where the stops are.

If you want to go to the Atocha-RENFE Railways Station:

The train station Atocha-RENFE (Spain Rail Services) has direct connection to many stations in Spain, but it is important to know how we can get to this station if we go to the airport and vice versa.

There are two quick and easy ways getting to Atocha-RENFE:

Metro: There direct connection from any of the airport terminals. The line you have to take is line 8, direction of "Nuevos Ministerios". From there you can choose to continue with metro until Atocha-RENFE station (making various connections to other subway lines) or take the RENFE train that takes you directly to the Atocha-RENFE station. From Atocha you can move anywhere in TGV, regional or commuter.

Commuter Rail: From any airport terminal you can go the Atocha-RENFE Railway Station. For this you can use the free bus between T1-T2-T3 terminals to the T4 and then take the train shuttle which will drop you at the station Atocha-RENFE.

Do you arrive or leave during the night?

In that case the best option is the bus line Airport Express, a line connecting the T1-T2-T3 with Atocha-RENFE, making stops at c / O'Donnell and Cibeles. It operates 24 hours, and at night final stop is Cibeles.

It's an easy way to get to the major stations in Madrid. For more detailed information we provide pages of the main means of transportation.

 Bon Voyage!
